"Dedicated to making Likelinesses the entity of prime interest"
News is now being posted on Twitter
The entity commonly called 'the best estimate of a probability' can be defined without using the concept of probability.
If we do this then we need another name for 'The best-estimate of a probability' since there is no probability for it to be the best-estimate of: on this site, we shall call it a Likeliness.
Removing probability from our concept of Likeliness means that we have also removed the idea of Likeliness as an approximation to probability, and so have removed large swathes of theory associated with approximations, such as tolerances, convergence, goodness-of-fit etc. This leaves a cleaner and more abstract theory which is of great intrinsic interest and use in its own right.
Likelinesses are a generalisation of probability. The Venn diagram showing the relationship between the two is as in A, not B.
This site is about the theory, and practical calculation, of likelinesses.
