Maximum Entropy and Bayesian Methods
The principle of maximum entropy has recently been applied to several problems of condensed matter theory. In this paper we discuss some technical aspects of the maxent approach t o these problems, and show some general properties of the applications of the method. In particular, we show that maxent can be thought o f a s a c o n venient w ay to close hierarchies, and to extrapolate perturbation series for quantities of physical interest. An illustration of this viewpoint i s p r o vided by andoi:10.1007/978-94-011-3460-6_8 fatcat:w7ilwtt375ac5i6vqkpmbpygau
