**ABSTRACT:**A measure is introduced of the information provided by an experiment. The measure is derived from the work of Shannon [10] and involves the knowledge prior to performing the experiment, expressed through a prior probability distribution over the parameter space. The measure is used to compare some pairs of experiments without reference to prior distributions; this method of comparison is contrasted with the methods discussed by Blackwell. Finally, the measure is applied to provide a solution to some problems of experimental design, where the object of experimentation is not to reach decisions but rather to gain knowledge about the world.The Annals of Mathematical Statistics 12/1956; - [Show abstract] [Hide abstract]

**ABSTRACT:**The electromotive force due to thermal agitation in conductors is calculated by means of principles in thermodynamics and statistical mechanics. The results obtained agree with results obtained experimentally.Physical Review - PHYS REV X. 01/1928; 32(1):110-113. - Physics-Uspekhi 01/2006; 176(7). · 1.89 Impact Factor
