THE COLLEGE OF SCIENCES AND MATHEMATICS provides programs in the physical sciences, life sciences, and mathematics at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Laboratory techniques required for partial purification, kinetic studies, and characterization of enzymes and nucleotides from various plants, animals and bacteria.
The college also offers scientific and mathematical service courses for students enrolled in all of the other colleges and schools.
I had dinner with Tom’s son and his wife once and I described Tom to them as a national treasure. He is a nationally-recognized educator and his writing and presentations are devoured by fanatics like me across the globe.
With Tom’s permission, I’ve deconstructed a video he put together into a series of figures which I’ll use to begin this discussion of how atherosclerosis actually takes place.

The figures denote the cells of the table involved in each metric, the probability being the fraction of each figure that is shaded. P(A|B) = Bayesian inference derives the posterior probability as a consequence of two antecedents, a prior probability and a "likelihood function" derived from a statistical model for the observed data.

For example, if one does not know whether the newborn baby next door is a boy or a girl, the color of decorations on the crib in front of the door may support the hypothesis of one gender or the other; but if in front of that door, instead of the crib, a dog kennel is found, the posterior probability that the family next door gave birth to a dog remains small in spite of the "evidence", since one's prior belief in such a hypothesis was already extremely small.
The critical point about Bayesian inference, then, is that it provides a principled way of combining new evidence with prior beliefs, through the application of Bayes' rule.
