The Theory That Would Not Die: How Bayes' Rule Cracked the Enigma Code, Hunted Down Russian Submarines, and Emerged Triumphant from Two Centuries of Controversy

By Sharon Bertsch McGrayne

Drawing on fundamental resource fabric and interviews with statisticians and different scientists, "The idea that may now not Die" is the riveting account of ways a likely uncomplicated theorem ignited one of many maximum medical controversies of all time. Bayes' rule seems to be an easy, one-line theorem: through updating our preliminary ideals with goal new info, we get a brand new and greater trust. To its adherents, it's a chic assertion approximately studying from event. To its competitors, it really is subjectivity run amok. within the first-ever account of Bayes' rule for basic readers, Sharon Bertsch McGrayne explores this debatable theorem and the human obsessions surrounding it. She lines its discovery via an novice mathematician within the 1740s via its improvement into approximately its smooth shape by means of French scientist Pierre Simon Laplace. She unearths why revered statisticians rendered it professionally taboo for a hundred and fifty years - even as that practitioners depended on it to unravel crises related to nice uncertainty and scanty details, even breaking Germany's Enigma code in the course of international battle II, and explains how the appearance of off-the-shelf machine know-how within the Nineteen Eighties proved to be a game-changer. at the present time, Bayes' rule is used all over the place from DNA interpreting to place of origin safeguard. "The conception that might now not Die" is a bright account of the generations-long dispute over one of many maximum breakthroughs within the background of utilized arithmetic and statistics.
