profile for Seamus on Stack Exchange, a network of free, community-driven Q&A sites

I am a postdoc in philosophy.

I contribute to a blog for philosophers who use LaTeX. If you fall in to that niche, check it out: PhilTeX. (The blog will be of use to all kind of humanities scholars using LaTeX, I imagine, but it was started by, and is run by philosophers...) The blog is currently defunct, but may be resurrected soon.

I made this beamer colour change package that slowly changes the colour of structure elements of beamer presentations. Feedback welcome. I also made this moreenum package which adds new enumeration options. The TeX goodies page of my website includes some other bits and bobs I've done.

comment Open math problems which high school students can understand
The fact that most of the problems listed here are number theory problems is interesting. Does anyone have an intuition as to why this might be the case? Is there a sociological explanation or is there something about number theory that makes it especially rich in easy to state hard to prove conjectures?

comment Finite additivity, atomlessness and countable additivity
@WillieWong Atomlessness and a kind of continuity are the extra that is required for a comparative probability relation to have a countably additive representation. That is, I guess, more suggestive than anything more concrete, but it is still relevant I think.

comment Finite additivity, atomlessness and countable additivity
I meant atomless in the sense of the boolean algebra not having atoms.

comment Finite additivity, atomlessness and countable additivity
@WillieWong I had suggested a tag wiki for measurement theory. See for example this wikipedia page or the Krantz et al book Foundations of Measurement. The comments at the end about Villegas relate to measurement theory (not measure theory) in this sense.
