If you have a question about this talk, please contact pg247.

We will be discussing a paper by Jos Uffink entitled “Can the maximum entropy principle be explained as a consistency requirement?” (1997), which carefully examines the efforts that have been made (by Jaynes, Shore & Johnson, and others) to provide a clear justification of the maximum entropy method. The paper can be found at:

This is a long paper, so I suggest that we begin by carefully reading sections 1,2,3, and 4 in the next meeting.

For those not based at the Cavendish, please come into the Astrophysics tea room beforehand to get a coffee.
