Mathematics and Statistics colloquium : Generalisations and variations of the Monty Hall Problem Other events...
The Monty Hall problem is a probability puzzle based on an American television game show. Some generalisations of the original problem are considered here: - The probability distribution is generalised from equal likelihood to an arbitrary known prior distribution, with the number of doors changed to a general n. - Optimal decision rule among a class of randomised strategies is derived. - The behaviour of the host and its consequences are taken into account. - Variations and further generalisations are considered.
