Redirected from Edwin Jaynes
A particular focus of his work was the construction of logical principles for assigning prior probability distributions, see the principle of maximum entropy and Laplace's principle of indifference[?].
His last book Probability Theory: The Logic of Science gathers together multiple threads of modern thinking regarding Bayesian probability and statistical inference, tying them into a powerful and coherent whole.
He also illuminates the inconsistencies, inefficiencies and limitations of other techniques, but builds his argument on comparison of results, sidestepping the rhetoric that has mired such discussion in the past.
