Most widely held works by Glenn Shafer
Algorithmic learning in a random world by Vladimir Vovk( )

17 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in English and held by 675 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Researchers in computer science, statistics, and artificial intelligence will find the book an authoritative and rigorous treatment of some of the most promising new developments in machine learning. Practitioners and students in all areas of research that use quantitative prediction or machine learning will learn about important new methods."--Jacket

The art of causal conjecture by Glenn Shafer( Book )

16 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 535 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In The Art of Causal Conjecture, Glenn Shafer lays out a new mathematical and philosophical foundation for probability and uses it to explain concepts of causality used in statistics, artificial intelligence, and philosophy.The various disciplines that use causal reasoning differ in the relative weight they put on security and precision of knowledge as opposed to timeliness of action. The natural and social sciences seek high levels of certainty in the identification of causes and high levels of precision in the measurement of their effects. The practical sciences--medicine, business, engineering, and artificial intelligence--must act on causal conjectures based on more limited knowledge. Shafer's understanding of causality contributes to both of these uses of causal reasoning. His language for causal explanation can guide statistical investigation in the natural and social sciences, and it can also be used to formulate assumptions of causal uniformity needed for decision making in the practical sciences.Causal ideas permeate the use of probability and statistics in all branches of industry, commerce, government, and science. The Art of Causal Conjecture shows that causal ideas can be equally important in theory. It does not challenge the maxim that causation cannot be proven from statistics alone, but by bringing causal ideas into the foundations of probability, it allows causal conjectures to be more clearly quantified, debated, and confronted by statistical evidence."
Probability and finance : it's only a game! by Glenn Shafer( Book )

15 editions published between 2001 and 2005 in English and held by 523 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Provides a foundation for probability based on game theory rather than measure theory. A strong philosophical approach with practical applications. Presents in-depth coverage of classical probability theory as well as new theory
Probabilistic expert systems by Glenn Shafer( Book )

14 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Probabilistic Expert Systems emphasizes the basic computational principles that make probabilistic reasoning feasible in expert systems. The key to computation in these systems is the modularity of the probabilistic model. Shafer describes and compares the principal architectures for exploiting this modularity in the computation of prior and posterior probabilities. He also indicates how these similar yet different architectures apply to a wide variety of other problems of recursive computation in applied mathematics and operations research. This book describes probabilistic expert systems in a more rigorous and focused way than existing literature, and provides an annotated bibliography that includes pointers to conferences and software. Also included are exercises that will help the reader begin to explore the problem of generalizing from probability to broader domains of recursive computation

Weighing evidence : the design and comparison of probability thought experiments by Glenn Shafer( Book )

2 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The assessment of probability on the basis of evidence is viewed as a thought experiment that yields an expression of degree of belief. Theories of subjective probability are viewed as tools or languages for analyzing evidence and expressing degree of belief. This article focuses on two probability languages: the classical Bayesian language and the language of belief functions. We describe and compare the semantics (i.e., the meaning of the scale) and the syntax (i.e., the formal calculus) of these languages. We also analyze the designs of thought experiments afforded by the two languages and discuss their implications. (Author)
