Part of the TCSS Symposium

As you go through life, you reinterpret your beliefs about the world based on what you observe. When you perform a scientific experiment, you want to update your conclusions about the underlying system based upon the results. But how can we do this rigorously? Bayes theorem is a simple equation; you probably encountered it in high school. But it is also the foundation for an entire field of statistical inference. I will reintroduce the theorem, and discuss some applications.

This talk is part of the Trinity Mathematical Society series.
