Modern Physical Probability

What does 'probability' mean in quantum mechanics? I address that rather philosophical question in Modern Physical Probability, a Google doc that replaces the Geocities pages onto which I had put my MLitt dissertation (all my Geocities links need replacing, I've done this one now because a rewrite of my Two Envelopes post is in this month's issue of The Reasoner:)
The doc has 9 sections:
1. Laplace’s Urn
2. H├íjek’s Arguments
3. Von Mises’ Limits
4. Popper’s Propensities
5. Reichenbach’s Limits
6. Mellor’s Personalism
7. Humphreys’ Paradox
8. Eagle’s Arguments
9. Lewis’s Humeanism
