Jr. Henry E. Kyburg

Oxford University Press

There are two main classes of interpretations of probability. The first are those that rely on a measure of frequency. The other is those that take a logical or subjective view of a unique event, independent of past or future events. The interpretation of probability which is used in the book is then defined as evidential probability, a function based on a set of known statements based on frequency or measure. The properties of probability are then enumerated and explained. Probabilities can also be based on statistical inference. Statistical inferences are statistical properties with high probability based on statistical evidence.

Keywords:   probability, frequency, evidential probability, statistics, statistical inference
