Top Ten Blog Posts on Quantpedia in 2020

Once again, let us use the turn of the year for a short recapitulation of posts on our blog. Apart from other things we do (which we will summarize in our next blog post in a few days), we have published around over 50 short blog posts / recherches of academic papers on this blog during the last year. We want to use this opportunity to summarize 10 of them, which were the most popular (based on Google Analytics tool). Maybe you will be able to find something you have not read yet …
