I have been going through a bit of a mathematical refresher lately. It has been a while in directly dealing with things of a probabilistic and statistical nature. In particular, I was reading up on Bayes’ Theorem and Bayesian inference. Bayes’ rule is a subtle mathematical statement that has deep interpretations and implications. Below were three introductory write ups I found upon the subject, each with a slightly different perspective of presentation.
