Electoral Reform

A modest yet effective proposal to make the House of Commons more representative.

Statistical Consulting

Statistical consulting is currently done in cooperation with
Thomson Data Analysis . Enquiries regarding consulting may be directed there.

Symbolic Computation

An R implementation of Symbolic Computation for Statistical Inference permits the calculation of expressions for moments cumulants asymptotic expansions etc. in R. The expressions may then be applied to data and numerically evaluated directly.
