Probability Theory The Logic of Science eBook
About the Book
E. T. Jaynes died April 30, 1998. Before his death he asked me to nish and publish his book on probability theory. I struggled with this for some time, because there is no doubt in my mind that Jaynes wanted this book nished. Unfortunately, most of the later Chapters, Jaynes' intended volume 2 on applications, were either missing or incomplete and some of the early also Chapters had missing pieces. I could have written these latter Chapters and lled the missing pieces, but if I did so, the work would no longer belong to Jaynes; rather, it would be a Jaynes-Bretthorst hybrid with no way to tell which material came from which author. In the end, I decided that the missing Chapters would have to stay missing|the work would remain Jaynes.
