## Prior Belief, Probability, and a simple simulation

Somehow I can’t resist interesting problems. So here’s another one that led me down a simulation rabbit hole. Given an urn (yeah right! always urns) with balls… Read more “Prior Belief, Probability, and a simple simulation”

## Interesting Bernoulli Urn Probability Problem [E.T Jaynes]

Still on the topic of probability, I came across yet another interesting problem in the E.T Jaynes book and it goes as follows Suppose an urn contains… Read more “Interesting Bernoulli Urn Probability Problem [E.T Jaynes]”

## Interesting Problems in Probability [from E.T Jaynes]

I decided to pick off where I left off as regards the study of probability and I returned to the trusty E.T Jaynes’ “Probability Theory- The Logic… Read more “Interesting Problems in Probability [from E.T Jaynes]”
