**A defense of Columbo: A multilevel introduction to probabilistic reasoning**

by G. D'Agostini

**Publisher**: arXiv 2010**Number of pages**: 60

**Description**:

Triggered by a recent interesting article on the too frequent incorrect use of probabilistic evidence in courts, the author introduces the basic concepts of probabilistic inference with a toy model, and discusses several important issues that need to be understood in order to extend the basic reasoning to real life cases.
