Title: Infinitesimal Probabilities

Abstract: In this talk, I will talk about Bayesian Epistemology and Infinitesimal Probabilities. When dealing with infinite sample spaces, we have the problem that not all the subsets are measurable. However, we do have some feeling and intuitions (although it might be wrong) about the probability there, so it seems that classical probability theory is not strong enough to express them. Hence, an approach is that we need an extension of real numbers with infinitesimally small number (superreal field) as the codomain of probability function. In this talk, I will introduce NAP Theory (non-Archimedean probabitliy theory) and its application in Bayesian Epistemology.
