  1. Infinitesimal Calculus as an Epistemic Mediator: A Commentary on the Use of Squares in Elementary Statistical Theory.Andrew Dynneson & Aaron Alvarez - unknown
    This is a commentary on the use of squares in elementary statistics. One sees an ubiquitous use of squares in statistics, and the analogy of "distance in a statistical sense" is teased out. We conjecture that elementary statistical theory has its roots in classical Calculus, and preserves the notion of two senses described in this paper. We claim that the senses of the differentials dx/dy hold between classical and modern infinitesimal Calculus and show how this sense becomes cashed out in (...)
