Basic concepts in the formalisation of thought: Sequence index

This sequence will explore basic concepts in the formalisation of thought especially as it related to logic, probabalistic reasoning and inductive reasoning. Most of these posts will be able to be read alone.

Post 1: Bayes Theorem and the Monty Hall Problem – An introduction to Bayes Theorem, one of the most important equations in probabalistic reasoning. Applied to the Monty Hall Problem and with links to other more thorough introductions to the theory.

Post 2: Bayes Theorem in practice: Kolmogorov Complexity – Bayes Theorem takes a prior probability of something being true and modifies it based on new evidence. But what do you do if you have no prior probability to use in the equation?
