Cox proposed a handful of intuitively-appealing, qualitative requirements for any system of plausible reasoning, and showed that these requirements imply that any such system is just probability theory in disguise. That is, there necessarily exists an order-preserving isomorphism between plausibilities and probabilities such that A X, after mapping from plausibilities to probabilities, respects the laws of probability.

Loosely speaking, this means that if you give me any x',y',z' in the appropriate range, I can find an x,y,z of the above form that is arbitrarily close to x',y',z'.

The "guided tour" mentioned above gives detailed rationales for all of these requirements. Not everyone agrees that these assumptions are reasonable. My paper proposes an alternative set of assumptions that are intended to be less disputable, as every one of them is simply a requirement that some property already true of propositional logic continue to be true in our extended logic for plausible reasoning. We may define a new propositional symbol s without affecting the plausibility of any proposition that does not mention that symbol.

Adding irrelevant background information does not alter plausibilities. Just like Cox, I then show that there is an order-preserving isomorphism between plausibilities and probabilities that respects the laws of probability. My result goes further, however, in that it gives actual numeric values for the probabilities.

Jaynes dispels the imaginary distinction between Jaynes - Goodreads ; Going beyond the conventional mathematics of probability theory, this study views the subject in a wider context. It discusses new results, along with applications Probability theory is far more useful if we recognize that probabilities express fundamentally logical inferences pertaining to individual cases.

See glossary of probability and statistics.

Probability quantifies as a number between 0 and 1, where, loosely speaking, 0 indicates impossibility and 1 indicates certainty. The higher the probability of an event, the more likely it is that the event will occur.
