ISBN-13: 978-0521592710 tantalizing ideas. the conceptual points that underlie his attacks are often right o. Science. This is a work written by a scientist for scientists. As such it is to be welcomed. The reader will certainly find things with which he disagrees, but he will also find much that will cause him to think deeply not only on his usual practice by also on statistics and probability in general.

Probability Theory: The Logic of Science. Jaynes intended this book to serve as both a reference and a text book. ii PROBABILITY THEORY – THE LOGIC OF SCIENCE. E. T. Jaynes died April 30, 1998. Before his death he asked me to nish and publish his book on probability theory. Volume I – principles and elementary applications.

This page intentionally left blank. Probability theory the logic of science. Before his death he asked me to finish and publish his book on probability theory. PROBABILITY THEORY THE LOGIC OF SCIENCE E. Jaynes. I struggled with this for some time, because there is no doubt in my mind that Jaynes wanted this book finished. Unfortunately, most of the later chapters, Jaynes’ intended volume 2 on applications, were either missing or incomplete, and some of the early chapters also had missing pieces.

Going beyond the conventional mathematics of probability theory, this study views the subject in a wider context. It discusses new results, along with applications of probability theory to a variety of problems. The book contains many exercises and is suitable for use as a textbook on graduate-level courses involving data analysis. Aimed at readers already familiar with applied mathematics at an advanced undergraduate level or higher, it is of interest to scientists concerned with inference from incomplete information.

In this book, E. Jaynes dispels the imaginary distinction between 'probability theory' and 'statistical inference', leaving a logical unity and simplicity, which provides greater technical power and flexibility in applications

In this book, E. Jaynes dispels the imaginary distinction between 'probability theory' and 'statistical inference', leaving a logical unity and simplicity, which provides greater technical power and flexibility in applications. This book goes beyond the conventional mathematics of probability theory, viewing the subject in a wider context. New results are discussed, along with applications of probability theory to a wide variety of problems in physics, mathematics, economics, chemistry and biology

Jaynes considers the frequency interpretation of probability as far too limiting

The mathematical theory of probability is consistent in-dependent of any interpretation. However, many consumers of this theory regard probability as a mathematical construct that predicts frequency. Jaynes considers the frequency interpretation of probability as far too limiting. Instead, probability should be interpreted as an indication of a state of knowledge or strength of evidence or amount of information within the context of inductive rea-soning.

Jaynes' posthumous book, Probability Theory: The Logic of Science (2003) gathers various threads of modern thinking about Bayesian probability and statistical inference, develops the notion of probability theory as extended logic, and contrasts the advantages of Bayesian techniques with the results of other approaches.
