Work

I'm a developer based in London/Surrey. I make a living doing all-and-sundry for a financial services firm, from numerical algorithms to server monitoring, and from web services to WPF applications.

A fair share of my time is spent doing r&d for the team on new technologies, trying out new ideas for better ways to get things done and optimizing existing code and processes.

Day-to-day I work with C#, with a handful of SQL thrown in.

Play

Food. Eating in great restaurants, cooking great meals to share with friends, everything gastronomic makes me happy. And I've got a worryingly huge collection of cookery books taking over my lounge to prove it!

Photography. I love my 40D and would surely have it with me more often were the beautiful British weather a little less wet.

And, of course coding. Having spent a lot of time around C-based languages (C, C++, C#, Obj-C), I'm currently enjoy playing with F# and trying to grok functional languages.

comment Formulae for combining statistical moments
Chris, thanks for all this, you've certainly saved me some hours of deriving this myself. Thanks for the link to the paper too, I'm already using incremental algorithms but some of the other items may well come in handy later on.

comment Formulae for combining statistical moments
Hey Chris, this is a great answer, but not necessarily what I need in my case (which I should have clarified in my question) due to massive cancellation. The formulae need to be in terms of intensive terms and avoid enormous quantities (such as $S^4_X$) to avoid loss of precision. Essentially I need $S^4_X$ expressed in terms of central moments / intensive quantities...
