David Blackwell:  Probability, Statistics, Games and Measure.


David Blackwell preferred to write short, direct papers dissectingproblems cleanly and showing the rest of us why things have to be theway they are. I plan to talk about David's life, describe a few of thethings he is famous for (Markov Chains, Renewal Theory, theRao-Blackwell theorem, information theory, game theory and measuretheory at least) and maybe prove one or two little things toillustrate his style -- in so far as I can.
