Title:

On an Entropy-Limit Conjecture

Abstract:

Objective Bayesians hold that degrees of belief ought to be chosen in the set of probability functions calibrated with one's evidence. The particular choice of degrees of belief is via some objective, i.e., not agent-dependent, inference process that selects the most equivocal probabilities from among those compatible with one's evidence. There are two different suggestions on how to equivocate on a first order predicate language, on by Jeff Paris the other by Jon Williamson. It has been conjectured that these suggestions agree, if they are well-defined. We shall investigate.
