A defense of Columbo: A multilevel introduction to probabilistic reasoning
by G. D'Agostini
Publisher: arXiv 2010
Number of pages: 60
Triggered by a recent interesting article on the too frequent incorrect use of probabilistic evidence in courts, the author introduces the basic concepts of probabilistic inference with a toy model, and discusses several important issues that need to be understood in order to extend the basic reasoning to real life cases.
