Definitely provoked some more thought on my part. <br /><br />The similarity with converging Markov Chains, and sensitivity to initial conditions is a pretty good analogy. It's not perfect though. The reason you get different answers from two Markov Chains you started with different initializations is that you haven't run them long enough. So the difference is down to error. <br /><br />Jaynes' point is subtly different: <i>disagreement can legitimately exist without any error by either party</i>.

The priors for the claim itself matter, and those are likely to be correlated with priors that effect how you evaluate incoming evidence. The evidence is hardly ever just "the evidence". It's usually another claim, and the who/what/where/how/why of the claim matter.

I meant the probabilities of "given the claim is true, my opponent would have claimed it to be true " vs. "given the claim is false, my opponent would still have claimed it to be true". Of these two, the first one should have higher probability, which should shift my belief the appropriate (possibly infinitesimal) amount towards agreement.Anonymousnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-5822805028291837738.post-79225387860533997912015-10-23T02:22:43.381-04:002015-10-23T02:22:43.381-04:00Isn't it still irrational (i.e., ignoring the ...Isn't it still irrational (i.e., ignoring the result of a Bayesian calculation) to assign a higher probability to "the claim is false and my opponents claim it to be true despite it because that furthers their agenda" than to "the claim is true and my opponents claim it to be true either because it is true or because they would have done so in any case". The fact that my opponent whom I believe to be deceitful states a factual claim that supports his position should never lower my probability for this claim, since the probability that he will state the claim is still slightly higher if it is true than if it is false. For example, if it is false there is an incentive for my opponent to just not mention it instead of perpetuating it, because being found out as a fraud can have negative impact on one's cause.Anonymousnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-5822805028291837738.post-40290970539966218702015-09-07T17:10:26.408-04:002015-09-07T17:10:26.408-04:00Here's a good list of CAD software: Open Sour...Here's a good list of CAD software: <a href="http://opensourceecology.org/wiki/CAD_tools" rel="nofollow">Open Source Ecology: CAD Tools</a>Joshua Stultshttps://www.blogger.com/profile/03506970399027046387noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-5822805028291837738.post-78594870759887295922015-08-21T21:38:36.238-04:002015-08-21T21:38:36.238-04:00Added the NASA CFD Utilities Library to the Open S...Added the <a href="http://sourceforge.net/projects/cfdutilities/" rel="nofollow">NASA CFD Utilities Library</a> to the <a href="http://www.variousconsequences.com/p/open-source-aeronautical-engineering.html" rel="nofollow">Open Source Aeronautical Engineering Tools</a> list.Joshua Stultshttps://www.blogger.com/profile/03506970399027046387noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-5822805028291837738.post-53820978692561190082015-06-23T10:35:46.488-04:002015-06-23T10:35:46.488-04:00Boyd's book is free to download in pdf or brow...Boyd's book is free to <a href="https://scholar.google.com/scholar?q=boyd+chebyshev+and+fourier+spectral+methods" rel="nofollow">download in pdf</a> or <a href="https://books.google.com/books?id=lEWnQWyzLQYC&lpg=PA1&ots=WSdLuFo4uu&dq=boyd%20chebyshev%20and%20fourier%20spectral%20methods&lr&pg=PA1#v=onepage&q&f=false" rel="nofollow">browse on google books</a>.Joshua Stultshttps://www.blogger.com/profile/03506970399027046387noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-5822805028291837738.post-60160810302659077212015-06-23T10:24:10.298-04:002015-06-23T10:24:10.298-04:00See the sections in Chapter 6 of Boyd's book w...See the sections in Chapter 6 of Boyd's book with the heading "Special Problems in Higher Dimensions:" for some pointers that might be helpful.

I am trying to extent your example to 2D function but cannot seem to figure our the recurrence for the derivative. My trial function is exp(x+y) sampled on grid with Nx and Ny points along x and y axis. The analytical result is 2.0*exp(x+y). I can send you my code if you want to see - but I have no luck so far. Any clues? Please help.
