Hello Tomas, thanks for the explanation, really enlightening.
I saw that you rewrite the statistical functions of Variance and Standard Deviation. Is it possible to define them in specific statistical packages? So as to reuse them in all other circumstances?
where can I find the javadoc of this distribution? Sorry if I have not found it
Thank you for all, cordiality, Sabino.

Hi Sabino,
if you want to use the Variance and Standard deviation calculations in multiple snippets, it would be good to define them as new calculator classes inside SQ.Calculators package and make them extend AbstractCalculator class. Then you will be able to use it the same way as any other calculator.
You can find the documentation here: https://strategyquant.com/doc/programming-sq. Please note, we are still working on it, so it’s not complete yet. We plan to add some javadoc style documentation as well.
Best regards,
Tomas
