Special Issue Information
Dear Colleagues,
Papers should address any aspects of symmetry arguments in probability and statistical inference, such as, but not limited to: Constructive rules of probability and inference derived from symmetry arguments; relative probabilities; symmetric probability measures, symmetry in probability distributions, symmetryrelated arguments in entropy (probabilistic) laws; epistemic probabilities and symmetry principles, symmetry arguments in the cognitive foundations of probability, statistical inference under symmetry, quantum statistical inference, asymmetric inference (in Markov processes), exchangeability and symmetry. Grouptheoretic approaches to probability and inference, including those discussing aspects of symmetry invariance derived from symmetry arguments will be considered. Papers discussing covariance structures derived from symmetry arguments, for example, will also be considered. Annotated reviews may also be considered.
Authors may benefit from clearly distinguishing papers (of lesser interest) that apply statistical methods to assess simple parametric hypotheses of symmetry from papers (of higher interest) that, instead, propose new statistical models amenable to classes of symmetries.
All papers should explicitly discuss the role of symmetry in their area of research, making it of interest and accessibility to all readership of Symmetry.
The guest editor encourages all authors, if in doubt, to contact him viana@uic.edu with a brief white paper on their topic.
