In this paper we give an overview of partial orders on the space of probability distributions that carry a notion of information content and serve as a generalisation of the Bayesian order given in [8]. We investigate what constraints are necessary in order to get a unique notion of information content. These partial orders can be used to give an ordering(More)
A B S T R A C T This thesis details a class of partial orders on the space of probability distributions and the space of density operators which capture the idea of information content. Some links to domain theory and computational linguistics are also discussed. Chapter 1 details some useful theorems from order theory. In Chapter 2 we define a notion of an(More)
