Logic & Mathematics ET Jaynes

This is the first technical post on my new blog, where I plan to continue writing about what I learn from self-study of mathematics. I'm currently reading E.T. Jaynes' Probability Theory: The Logic of Science, and Christopher Bishop's Pattern Recognition and Machine Learning. While I understand many LessWrong2.0 readers are far above my level in maths, maybe there are some who would benefit from and enjoy conversation about the sort of things I'm learning.

As one of the less mathematically accomplished audience, I approve. I would go as far as to say I don't expect projects like this to ever get old on LessWrong, especially as we digest new developments like Logical Induction and integrate them with the foundational intuitions in this book.

I've been hoping to get around to reading this book for ages! I look forward to coming back and studying your posts when I do.
