**Time:** 5:30 p.m. **Place:** Jeffery Hall 118

**Speaker:** Jamie Mingo (Queen's University)

**Title:** Paradoxical Probabilities.

**Abstract:** Since the early days of probability theory there have been paradoxical statements, usually the result of implicit assumptions. The best known example is the Monty Hall problem. In this talk I discuss several examples, in particular the "bigger number paradox".
