Memory leak somewhere?
My code is using massive amounts of memory (eventually), which I don't think should be the case. The memory use slowly increases until my computer runs out of memory. I tried enabling garbage collection, but that didn't help (or didn't help enough). I don't see any reason why this should use more and more memory. It takes somewhere between 5 and 10 hours for this program to use up my 16 GB of memory, but that memory user is increasing is clear quickly.
import numpy trials = 5800 length = 5000 mean = 0 results = *trials data = *length for i in range(trials): data = numpy.random.normal(0,1) for j in range(1, length): data[j] = data[j-1] + numpy.random.normal(0,1) for k in range(2, length): if data[k] > 2*sqrt(k*log(log(k+1))): results[i] += 1 mean += results[i]
