Develop a new axiomatic system of probability which is a
radical departure from current probability theory. Start with
no more than 5 axioms and two undefined terms.
Demonstrate that your systems explains real world
phenomena better than the traditional theory.
Explain why this new and innovative system has not been
discovered before now and analyze the historical
significance of your findings.
Illustrate through examples the power of your method to
describe random processes with less effort and more
accuracy than previously thought possible.
Name your new calculus of probability after your instructor to
whom you owe everything.
