Recently, I've been trying to implement some working version of the Glicko Rating System for fun.
However, I fail to understand how to programmatically isolate
R in Step 2. As you can see
R appears on both sides of the equation and for a variable number of instances. How would I programatically solve for
R using python?
Thanks for any help :)
EDIT: Actually shouldn't the
R in step 2 be
R_0 on the right hand side of the equation? Is this a typo? Note in "The Glicko system" by Professor Mark E. Glickman, the equations are identical except for all
Rs being on one side and
R' being on the other.
