Mathematicians might think that we sabotage our lottery preferences due to the "Allais Paradox".

My latest Decoded Science article, "The Probability of the Allais Paradox in Lottery Preferences", explains this effect and why it actually worries some mathematicians.

"Taiwan Lottery Dream Sheet" by Prince Roy
This paradox is especially interesting because it might actually lead mathematicians to consider alternatives to the logical and reasonable "Independence Axiom"...which it violates.

As always, I also promote my article in DeHaan Services, where "Lottery Sabotage by the Allais Paradox" adds a teaser for this topic.

Writing Tip

Today's writing tip combines a pair of golden oldies.

If you commit to a series of articles, then you should seize specific topics as they present themselves or, perhaps, based on what is most exciting.

With the "Probability" series just beginning, I had known that I wanted to explore paradoxes. The "Allais paradox" was new to me, but I thought it gave a fascinating insight into the conflict between math and psychology.

    Flexible Sidebar

    Weebly's "Blog Author" widget from the Blog Sidebar's Elements menu provides a lot of flexibility. You can change both the title and the text.

    It has all the capabilities for text editing that you find in most Weebly text widgets.

    At this point, I don't see a way to code any HTML in this widget.

    The "Picture" does what you expect: it displays an image of your choice. I just added my home-made picture of "Copyright DeHaan Services 2013" as the top element in this sidebar on Jan. 22, 2013.

    The "Search Box" is a "Pro" feature; if you're paying for Weebly hosting, it may be worthwhile.

    The other widgets are pre-programmed to do what they say.
