“The Bayesian Second Law of Thermodynamics”


Someone pointed me to this paper (by Anthony Bartolotta, Sean Carroll, Stefan Leichenauer, and Jason Pollack) and asked me what I thought. I didn’t have the time to look into it in any detail, but based on the title it seemed a bit Jaynesian.

I sent it to a statistician and former physicist, who wrote:

A little bit Jaynesian but not quite statistical enough. I dunno, I feel like they missed some really important details and never really defined their non-equilibrium system well. But I guess they’re just physicists in the end. . . .

    What do you mean by Jaynesian? I mean, what is your stance toward Jaynes?
