Jaynes' principle


Jaynes' principle

Jaynes' principle has to do with uncertainty in physics.

Jaynes' principle states that:

"Assume that experimental outcomes e_i and functions f_i ( e_i ) = f_i given n additional data from experiments. The hypothesis h_n has to be adjusted such that probabilities p(ei,n) obey:"
sum_{i} P left ( i,N ight ) = 1
