ABSTRACT
The article presents mathematical analysis on Sleeping Beauty problem which is a philosophical dilemma related to conditional probability. The author said that mathematicians used different approach to appeal the Principle of Indifference which evaluates the equal probabilities and mathematical reasoning. The author added that mathematical probability theory supported with axiom resulted one-third is the correct answer in the problem.

    In this communication, we characterize a measure of information of types α, β, and γ by taking certain axioms parallel to those considered earlier by Havrda and Charvat along with the recursive relation Hn (p1, ..., pn; α, β, γ)-Hn-1 (p1 + p2, p3, ..., pn; α, β,...

    We present a semantics for a language that includes sentences that can talk about their own probabilities. This semantics applies a fixed point construction to possible world style structures.

In particular, we investigate the extent to which semantic deficiency, stable truth, and nearly stable truth can be so expressed, and we study different axiomatic systems for the Revision...
