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, side-stepping the rhetoric that has mired such discussion in the past.
