What is this site about?

This site is about the algebraic properties of that entity which is usually called "The Best Estimate of the Probability" (BEotP), in its own right.

By "in its own right" is meant that the BEotP is viewed as being more than an adjunct to some probability, whose only importance lies in how well it approximates that probability.

In everyday use, we view the probability of some event as being of primary importance -as being what we actually want- and the BEotP as something we have to put up with, but would rather wish we didn't have to deal with.

That is, the probability is viewed as being the entity of prime interest, and the BEotP as being of secondary interest. This site is about reversing that view and and studying the abstract properties of the BEotP without regard to any probability.
