How to Generate Alpha in a Predominantly Beta World - New York Times
Money managers have been stepping up their search for Wall Street's holy grail: an investment that consistently generates "alpha." While that may just be Greek to people far removed from Wall Street, when money managers talk about alpha, they are referring to investments that make money even when markets are slumping. It is the opposite of beta, the term applied to investments whose returns tend to track the market. With conventional beta investments in stocks and bonds earning low single digits, a growing list of money managers are pitching an alternative, known as portable alpha. This fancy sounding name refers ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Alternatives can be acquired directly, of course, but advisers should also consider the alternative strategies found in the form of mutual funds designed to zig when the stock market zags. Morningstar Inc. counts nearly 200 mutual funds that fit into one of five broad alternative categories, including ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Secrets to poolside confidence
“It would be great to get a shot of you by a pool or in the pool.” This request in a recent e-mail I received from the assistant features editor at The Signal newspaper when we were discussing this article made me think: “Who me?! When you say in the pool — you mean in a bathing suit?! Huh?! No way!” Does this response sound familiar? What would you say if a newspaper said it wanted to shoot pictures of you in a bathing suit? Do you dread the coming of summer when you realize it is time to bare your body for the Fourth of July pool party this weekend? Don’t worry.

Minimax with Alpha-Beta Cutoff
The two players take turns and try respectively to maximize and minimize a scoring function (also called utility function). The two players are called respectively MAX and MIN. We assume that the MAX player makes the first move. We represent the game as a tree where the nodes represent the current position and the arcs represent moves. Since players take turns, successive nodes represent positions where different players must move. We call the nodes MAX or MIN nodes depending of who is the player that must move at that node. A game tree could be infinite. The leaves represent terminal positions, i.e. positions where MAX wins ...
