Statistics Seminars: Testing by Betting and the Randomness of Risk

Presented by Glenn Shafer, Rurgers University
19 October 2020 13:00 in ZOOM (How to join? Ask georgios.karagiannis@durham.ac.uk)

Before it was a theory of probability, mathematical probability was a theory of betting. Before they were sequences of random variables, martingales were strategies for betting. By looking at the matter this way once more, we gain insights into statistical testing and the behavior of entrepreneurs. This talk with touch on the May 2019 book Game-Theoretic Foundations for Probability and Finance (by Glenn Shafer and Vladimir Vovk, Wiley) and on recent working papers at www.probabilityandfinance.com .
