In this workshop, we'll introduce and examine the consequences of probability theory in various areas of physics. From the meaning of probabilities, to how to reason with incomplete information, model comparison, parameter estimation, and modelling with Bayesian networks. The approach will view probabilities as an extension of logic (i.e. following Laplace, Bernoulli, Cox, Jaynes, etc)
Level: 1, Subjects: Probability
