Hi all, I want to build a Rust library about time series forecasting for my thesis, do you have any resource to recomend to an experienced programmed, which is quite new to Rust?
It's worth skimming through The Book to familiarise yourself with the language.
To get a better intuition for
unsafe, Learn Rust With Entirely Too Many Linked Lists is a good resource. Although I doubt you will be doing any
unsafe for something that is primarily about maths and calculations.
The blessed.rs site provides a list of the go-to crates for certain problem domains. For example, the general section mentions crates for serializing data (
serde), dealing with time (
chrono), and so on. There is also a math section which mentions crates for linear algebra (
nalgebra) and data frames (
polars). You may also be interested in using Arrow for your data format because it allows easy interop with other languages, in which case I'd recommend the
arrow2 (docs) over the official
arrow crate because it has a more idiomatic API.
The Polars docs are also quite comprehensive and warrant a visit if you are looking for a Rust alternative to numpy.
