Request for references
Request for references: I suppose some of it is still classified, but nonetheless, are there any references for this article, particularly pertaining to Turing's and Good's work? I added a couple of references to the article, but they only pertain to the material I added about Hartley. 18.104.22.168 22:52, 25 November 2005 (UTC)
The material is now in the Ban (information ) page. This page can be deleted. —Comment added 19:33, 19 November 2006 (UTC) by User:Grgarza (talk) — Preceding unsigned comment added by SudoMonas (talk • contribs)
There was a  tag in the sentence "decibans corresponds to an odds ratio of 10:1; 20 decibans to 100:1 odds, etc". That is relatively straightforward math (see bellow) so I presume it refers to the use of it as in "The deciban is a particularly useful measure of information in odds-ratios or weights of evidence" and moved it there.
Given a event with odds 1:n, then the information is .
For n "large",
- If we use probability 1/n instead of 1:n odds, there's no need to stipulate "for large n". --Doradus (talk) 16:29, 20 July 2011 (UTC)
