Statistics Seminars: Zero Probability, Irrelevance, and Independence: A Non-Standard Approach

Presented by Matthias Troffaes,

1 December 2006 14:00 in CM221

I'll discuss theoretical issues when developing a theory of
probability which admits conditioning on zero probability events,
different ways of arriving at a definition of irrelevance and
independence, why they (don't) make sense, and discuss an alternative
based on non-standards.
