3 years ago...

3 years ago…

MONTHLY MEMORY LANE: 3 years ago: February 2015 [1]. Here are some items to for your Saturday night reading and rereading. Three are in preparation for Fisher’s birthday next week (Feb 17). One is a Saturday night comedy where Jeffreys appears to substitute for Jay Leno. The 2/25 entry lets you go back 6 years where there’s more on Fisher, a bit of statistical theatre (of the absurd), Misspecification tests, and a guest post (by Schachtman) on that infamous Matrixx court case (wherein the Supreme Court is thought to have weighed in on statistical significance tests). The comments are often the most interesting parts of these old posts.

February 2015

  • 02/05 Stephen Senn: Is Pooling Fooling? (Guest Post)
  • 02/10 What’s wrong with taking (1 – β)/α, as a likelihood ratio comparing H0 and H1?
  • 02/13 Induction, Popper and Pseudoscience
  • 02/16 Continuing the discussion on truncation, Bayesian convergence and testing of priors
  • 02/16 R. A. Fisher: ‘Two New Properties of Mathematical Likelihood’: Just before breaking up (with N-P)
  • 02/17 R. A. Fisher: How an Outsider Revolutionized Statistics (Aris Spanos)

  • 02/19 Stephen Senn: Fisher’s Alternative to the Alternative
  • 02/21 Sir Harold Jeffreys’ (tail area) one-liner: Saturday night comedy (b)
  • 02/25 3 YEARS AGO: (FEBRUARY 2012) MEMORY LANE

    .

  • 02/27 Big Data is the New Phrenology?
