I am a student, currently studying Electrical & Information Engineering at Cambridge University.

My experience with software is quite broad, but I am still learning a lot of basics as I haven't been 'in the game' very long.

I started out programming Picaxes and moved onto 'proper' languages with VB6 and C#. I also had a little play with Java on the side to try that out. I have taken some small courses on Matlab and C++ at University and have had some time programming a PIC in C for a course project and using FreeRTOS for a University engineering society. I have experience in a large Perl project and some basic web develoment (HTML, Javascript, DOJO) through an internship. More recently I have tried my hand at android and Java for a side project and another internship. So all in all, a reasonably wide experience of languages but not much depth unfortunately.

although i would guess the "$t \mid$" arent supposed to be there

so, just to be clear on this answer: $\delta_{w_1-w_2}(s) = \delta_{s}(s)$?

transcribed from lecture notes :) doesnt mean anything to me either lol

this tallies with what i was thinking for the middle term of the integral - it is a gaussian that moves around to wherever s is

great! i was just thinking of a delta function. so i could describe it as a delta function that sits wherever y is

im following throgh some lecture notes on machine learning. this is a ranking algorithm. w1 and w2 are the skills of 'players'. s is the skill difference. p(s|w1,w2) is used in a larger integral (integrating against s and another variable, t). I was trying to get an intuitive feel for what was going on

does a uniform distribution work? im just trying to get a picture in my head of this and some other distributions to follow some maths through roughly. its engineering maths, so potentially sloppy
