Book Description Atlantic Publishers & Distributors (P) Ltd., 2012. Softcover. Book Condition: New. Probability theory is a well-established branch of mathematics that finds applications in a wide area of scholarly activities such as in physics, chemistry, geology, medicine, economics, sociology, engineering, operation research, etc. With his insightful exploration of the probabilistic connection between philosophy and the history of science, John Maynard Keynes, perhaps the best known of economists, breathed new life in the study of both these disciplines. His A Treatise on Probability is an outstanding mathematical work and is widely considered as an important contribution to the theory regarding the logical probability of proportions. What Keynes wrote is sacrosanct and has been retained in this book. His original book is in 31 chapters. In order to facilitate updating, we have combined some chapters and presented it in 26 chapters and converted it into third person from the original first person, keeping in view the modern trend. We have added important developments that have taken place since Keynes wrote the book, to provide updated material to the students and teachers of various disciplines. The book is divided into five parts. Part-I provides fundamental ideas on probability. Part-II contains fundamental theorems. Part-III deals with induction and analogy. Part-IV throws light on some philosophical applications of probability, while Part-V relates to the foundations of statistical inference. Bibliography has been updated by including more books. Index also stands revised and updated. Exclusive chapters ?Practice Problems? have been added in each part except Part-IV, containing a large number of solved exercises providing plenty of opportunity to the students for practicing skills and developing a sound understanding of the subject. Unsolved exercises have been given under ?Test Yourself? The book with updated matter and in its present layout will be useful for students and teachers of various disciplines including economics, physical sciences, engineering, geology, statistics, economics and sociology. Contents : Volume - II?Part-IV?Some Philosophical Applications of Probability?16. The Meanings of Objective Chance, and of Randomness; 17. The Application of Probability to Conduct; 18. Probability Distributions; 19. Probability Densities; 2. Practice Problems?Part-V?The Foundations of statistical inference?21. The Nature of Statistical Inference; 22. Special Discrete Probability Distributions; 23. Special Continuous Probability Distributions; 24. Inversion of Bernoulli?s Theorem and Methods of Lexis; 25. Outline of a Constructive Theory; 26.

Book Description WWW.Bnpublishing.com, United States, 2008. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 200 x 126 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.There is, first of all, the distinction between that part of our belief which is rational and that part which is not. If a man believes something for a reason which is preposterous or for no reason at all, and what he believes turns out to be true for some reason not known to him, he cannot be said to believe it rationally, although he believes it and it is in fact true. On the other hand, a man may rationally believe a proposition to be probable, when it is in fact false. -from Chapter II: Probability in Relation to the Theory of Knowledge His fame as an economist aside, John Maynard Keynes may be best remembered for saying, In the long run, we are all dead. That phrase may well be the most succinct expression of the theory of probability every uttered. For a longer explanation of the premise that underlies much of modern mathematics and science, Keynes s A Treatise on Probability is essential reading. First published in 1920, this is the foundational work of probability theory, which helped establish the author s enormous influence on modern economic and even political theories. Exploring aspects of randomness and chance, inductive reasoning and logical statistics, this is a work that belongs in the library of any interested in numbers and their application in the real world. AUTHOR BIO: British economist JOHN MAYNARD KEYNES (1883-1946) also wrote The Economic Consequences of the Peace (1919), The End of Laissez-Faire (1926), The Means to Prosperity (1933), and General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money (1936).
