Foundations of Probability Seminar

Many disciplines use probability theory, including mathematical statistics, philosophy, and physics. The goal of this seminar, which began in 2016, is to help people in these disciplines learn from each other.  The seminars have been organized primarily by faculty members and doctoral students at Rutgers University.  Current organizers are Harry Crane (Rutgers Statistics), Ruobin Gong (Rutgers Statistics), Barry Loewer (Rutgers Philosophy), Glenn Shafer (Rutgers Business School), and Snow Zhang (New York University Philosophy).

Everyone is welcome to attend upcoming seminars and to view videos of past seminars. (Video links go to Foundations of Probability Panel Discussions YouTube channel.)
