From the preface:
This volume has been created to honor Professor David Blackwell of the University of California at Berkeley by his students, colleagues, friends and admirers. Most of the papers of this volume are on topics connected with areas in which Blackwell has played a major role. There are review articles on Comparison of Experiments, on Games of Timing, on Merging of Opinions, on Associate Memory Models, and SPLIF's etc. There are historical views of Carnap, of von Mises, and of the Berkeley Statistics Department. But the bulk of the articles are research articles in Probability, Statistics, Gambling, Game Theory, Markov Decision Processes, Set Theory and Logic. Special care has been taken to achieve a wide variety of readable and interesting papers from outstanding scholars.
