Abstract

IN Nature of November 25 there is a letter from Mr. W. W. Barkas together with Prof. E. T. Whittaker's answer, concerning determinism. The reply refers inter alia to some experiment, which is apparently very famous, as during the last century nearly every book or treatise devoted to probability cites, describes or refers to, the so-called experiment of tossing a coin, or dice, etc. However, I have some doubts if any of the authors referring to this ‘experiment’ ever attempted to treat it as an experiment, that is, to repeat it.
