#### Uncertain Judgements

Wiley 2006; US$ 88.00 US$ 79.20Elicitation is the process of extracting expert knowledge about some unknown quantity or quantities, and formulating that information as a probability distribution. Elicitation is important in situations, such as modelling the safety of nuclear installations or assessing the risk of terrorist attacks, where expert knowledge is essentially the only... more...

#### Probabilistic Symmetries and Invariance Principles

Springer New York 2006; US$ 183.52This book is about random objects—sequences, processes, arrays, measures, functionals—with interesting symmetry properties. Here symmetry should beunderstoodinthebroadsenseofinvarianceunderafamily(notnecessarily a group) of measurable transformations. To be precise, it is not the random objects themselves but rather their distributions that are assumed... more...

#### Basic Principles and Applications of Probability Theory

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2005; US$ 146.81Probability theory arose originally in connection with games of chance and then for a long time it was used primarily to investigate the credibility of testimony of witnesses in the “ethical” sciences. Nevertheless, probability has become a very powerful mathematical tool in understanding those aspects of the world that cannot be described by deterministic... more...

#### Good Thinking

University of Minnesota Press 1983; US$ 72.00 US$ 61.20Good Thinking is a representative sampling of I. J. Good’s writing on a wide range of questions about the foundations of statistical inference, especially where induction intersects with philosophy. Good believes that clear reasoning about many important practical and philosophical questions is impossible except in terms of probability. This book collects... more...
