Probable evidence

Definitions

  • Near the foundation of the probable bake shop, a pair of kilns once served for slaking lime, and perhaps for firing pottery. Between the kilns was a flame-scarred pit containing evidence of ironworking and the roasting of bog ore for iron

If there's no evidence of liquid fuel in these areas, it's probably not the carb, but you could always temporarily try out a friend's known, good carb to be sure.
If we don't get irrefutable evidence of Bigfoot by the end of next year we're probably never going to get that proof.
They also said that prosecutors' terrorism theory, which allowed evidence of the gangs ' alleged criminal acts over three years, probably prejudiced the jury.

In science:

The distinction between the velocities of ordinary pulsars and MSPs is evident from the histograms of pulsar velocities in Fig. 1. A Kolmogorov–Smirnov test shows that the probability that the respective velocities were drawn from the same distribution is <10−5 .
Millisecond Pulsar Velocities
The ratio of the evidence for two topologies is a Bayesian measure of the relative probability.
Constraining topology in harmonic space
Calculating the numerator of the right hand side on a fine grid throughout the parameter space would allow the normalising evidence Pr(d|n) to be calculated, the regions of high probability to be located, and any uninteresting parameters to be numerically integrated over.
Physical component analysis of galaxy cluster weak gravitational lensing data
The posterior probability distribution for n can be seen to be available from the data via the evidence: Pr(n|d) ∝ Pr(d|n)Pr(n).
Physical component analysis of galaxy cluster weak gravitational lensing data
In the same way the evidence may also be used to quantify the relative probabilities of two or more competing component models, a process carried out in Kneib et al. (2003).
Physical component analysis of galaxy cluster weak gravitational lensing data
You can safely discard or ignore higher-order terms if you can provide evidence that terms beyond a given order are probably small, although you can never prove that an unknown term is small.
Performing a theoretically robust Ryan test using intermediate-mass black holes
Further evidence for this hypothesis comes from the probability argument in § 4.3.
Fluorescent Lyman-alpha Emission from Gas Near a QSO at Redshift 4.28
Evidently, the 9 , or an abelian vector gluon theory probabilities for a hypothetical constant and energy independent αs which predicts an increase of the coupling with increasing energy scale, c.f. figure 8, have negligible probabilities to describe data.
Experimental Tests of Asymptotic Freedom
These pieces of evidence suggest that X-ray Compton-thick and -thin absorbers are physically decoupled. ∼ 1 pc), the latter is likely to be The former is probably very compact (typical scales < ∼ 100 pc.
X-ray obscuration in local Universe AGN
The central velocity dispersion, 105 km s−1 , is quite high for its luminosity probably showing evidence for the presence of a central black hole, as implied by the peak of velocity dispersion in the centre of M 32 (Simien & Prugniel, 2002).

This is because, as is evident from equation 11, multiple terms involving different mixing strengths and ∆m2 values contribute to the transition probability for να → νβ .
Neutrino Experiments
There is an evident connection between a choice of a two-sided p-value and a critical region (CR) for a two-sided test at level α. A CR is defined through critical values corresponding to probabilities α1 = wLα and α2 = wRα, with the weights of the two tails wL + wR = 1.
On two-sided p-values for non-symmetric distributions
As for the ESSENCE set MLCS2k2 gives a weaker evidence than SALT, it is quite probable that this is also the case for the Union set.
