## Bayesian Probability

• An Intuitive Explanation of Bayesian Reasoning
• Wikipedia.org/wiki/Bayesian. 'Bayesianism is the philosophical tenet that the mathematical theory of probability applies to the degree of plausibility of statements, or to the degree of belief of rational agents in the truth of statements; when used with Bayes theorem, it then becomes Bayesian inference. This is in contrast to frequentism, which rejects degree-of-belief interpretations of mathematical probability, and assigns probabilities only to random events according to their relative frequencies of occurrence. The Bayesian interpretation of probability allows probabilities assigned to random events, but also allows the assignment of probabilities to any other kind of statement. Whereas a frequentist and a Bayesian might both assign probability 1/2 to the event of getting a head when a coin is tossed, only a Bayesian might assign probability 1/1000 to personal belief in the proposition that there was life on Mars a billion years ago, without intending to assert anything about any relative frequency.'

## Fibonacci Numbers

Fibonacci numbers, the Golden section and the Golden string. The Fibonacci series, discovered by Leonardo Fibonacci in 1202, is where each number is the sum of the preceding 2 numbers: 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, .... The neat thing is that the Fibonacci series is related to the Golden section, the Golden string, and occurs in nature. EG: Nautilus shells and cauliflowers.
