The rules of probability

If you know how to program, you have the skills to turn data into knowledge using the tools of probability and statistics. This concise introduction shows you how to perform statistical analysis computationally, rather than mathematically, with programs written in Python. You'll work with a case study throughout the book to help you learn the entire data analysis process—from collecting data and generating statistics to identifying patterns and testing hypotheses.

Chance events are commonplace in our daily lives. Every day we face situations where the result is uncertain, and, perhaps without realizing it, we guess about the likelihood of one outcome or another. Fortunately, mastering the concepts of probability can cast new light on situations where randomness and chance appear to rule. In this fully revised second edition of Understanding Probability, the reader can learn about the world of probability in an appealing way.

Included in the SME interest margin charged by banks is an element of price that reflects the probability, from the banks’ experience and data, that some of its SME customers will not be able to repay the debt. The methodology and calculations used to determine the cost associated with the risk of lending are set out under international rules by the Basel Regulatory Framework4 . Regulators also give guidance to banks with regard to the buffers needed to protect banks in the event of shocks to the financial system.

Mastering the concepts of probability can cast new light on situations in which randomness and chance appear to rule. With an emphasis on why probability works and how it can be applied, Henk Tijms introduces the reader to the world of probability in an informal way. Lotteries and casino games provide a natural source of motivation, and he carefully discusses these with many worked examples to illustrate the key concepts from probability theory. Henk Tijms has been a professor in Operations Research at the Vrije University in Amsterdam since 1976.

This paper presents an algorithm for learning the probabilities of optional phonological rules from corpora. The algorithm is based on using a speech recognition system to discover the surface pronunciations of words in spe.ech corpora; using an automatic system obviates expensive phonetic labeling by hand. We describe the details of our algorithm and show the probabilities the system has learned for ten common phonological rules which model reductions and coarticulation effects.

PID controllers are probably the most commonly used controller structures in industry. They do, however, present some challenges to control and instrumentation engineers in the aspect of tuning of the gains required for stability and good transient performance. There are several prescriptive rules used in PID tuning. An example is that proposed by Ziegler and Nichols in the 1940's and described in this note.

We present an approach to grammar development where the task is decomposed into two separate subtasks. The first task is hnguistic, with the goal of producing a set of rules that have a large coverage (in the sense that the correct parse is among the proposed parses) on a bhnd test set of sentences. The second task is statistical, with the goal of developing a model of the grammar which assigns maximum probability for the correct parse.

As you read GoofProof Business Writing, remember that your written communications say a lot about you. If they are poorly organized, full of spelling mistakes, or use offensive language, you will appear less than professional, and whatever you have to say will probably be lost in the confusion.

you probably asked yourself the same questions: “Why would anyone give away the rules to the original Turtle Trading System? How can I be sure that these are the original Turtle Trading System rules as taught by Richard Dennis and William Eckhardt?” The answer to these questions lies in the origin of this project.

The problems associated with the frenetic combustion of fossil fuels are many: pollution, global warming, and foreseeable exhaustion of resources, among others. Although difﬁcult to estimate, the costs associated with these problems are huge and indirect,8 and may be ﬁnancial, human, or both. Costs induced by pollution include, but are not limited to, health expenses, the cost of replanting forests devastated by acid rain, and the cost of cleaning and ﬁxing monuments corroded by acid rain. Health expenses probably represent the largest share of these costs, especially in developed...

This book is based on a series of papers and other material that the author (occasionally in coauthorship with others – see Acknowledgements) has written during the last decade or more. Several of these papers were from the very outset intended to be integrated in this book, but no chapter is identical to any previously published material. Other chapters are new and exclusive to this book.

Probably the most common association with the word grammar is the word rule. In this book, we also use the term rule. But there arc two qualifications we would like to make to the use of the term rule in connection with grammar. The first is that rules are not, as we shall see, airtight formulations; they always have "exceptions."

Homer, in all probability, knew no rules of rhetoric, and was not tortured with the consideration of grammatical construction, and yet his verse will endure through time. If everybody possessed the genius of Homer, rules and cautions in writing would be unnecessary. Today all men speak, and most men write, but it is observed that those who most closely follow Homer's method of writing without rules are most unlike Homer in the results. The ancient bard was a law unto himself; we need rules for our guidance.

As in previous annual Outlooks, we established a set of possible scenarios for the coming year. The majority of this report is built around the expectations established in the Base Case, as shown in exhibit 1. The alternative cases, Rebound and Recession, do not set the outer limits of possible results but rather acknowledge that there is a real probability that the market will follow a different path. Each scenario case represents a set of expectations which work in concert.
