Probability Theory: The Logic of Science, E. T. Jaynes

Probability Theory: The Logic of Science PDF Download Ebook. E. T. Jaynes and G. Larry Bretthorst discuss new results, along with applications of probability theory to a variety of problems. Going beyond the conventional mathematics of probability theory, this study views the subject in a wider context.

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.

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. This is not an ordinary text. It is an unabashed, hard sell of the Bayesian approach to statistics.

It is wonderfully down to earth, with hundreds of telling examples. Everyone who is interested in the problems or applications of statistics should have a serious look. If you deal at all with probability theory, statistics, data analysis, pattern recognition, automated diagnosis, any forms of reasoning from inconclusive or uncertain information, you need to read this book. It will give you new perspectives on these problems.
