... In a sense, the degree of this node, in this case n = 5, measures the uncertainty that we have at this point ... to use the degree of the node as a measure of uncertainty, but it would operate as a multiplicative measure rather than the sort of additive measure that we would normally prefer ... To convert this to an additive measure, one simply takes the logarithms to a convenient base, say 2, and thus arrives at the not too astounding fact that the uncertainty of ...
Banach–Tarski Paradox - The Von Neumann Paradox in The Euclidean Plane
... E(2) of Euclidean motions of the plane is solvable, which implies the existence of a finitely-additive measure on E(2) and R2 which is invariant under ...
