Abstract:

In previous papers the use of the logistic function in assessing radar performance has been discussed, with reference to examples, and the theory of subjective probability proposed by Dr. I. J. Good has been featured. In this paper the use of the logistic by other workers will be considered and the function will be examined in the light of views held by Dr. Good, Professor Hogben, Dr. J. Berkson and other scientists. An example will be referred to briefly to explain a choice of model and two fresh examples will be given to illustrate some further deliberations. Author
