    Exclamation P(k|n,s) , what type of probability is this?

    I have to do a seminar and it has some maths in it, which i can't grasp.
    I know about probability of one variable, two variables and prob of one variable given the other variable.

    NOTE( i have uploaded the file as attachment)
    please check page 2 of this pdf. you will see an equation n=arg max P(k|n,s)

    How should i read this equation.?what does it mean mathematically? Can u provide some references?

    I also don't have any idea about the Theorem 1 given

    "Theorem 1: If k < n, ^n is unique and is the smallest integer
    j k, which satisfies j+1......"

    Please go through the page and give me some idea.

    Hey lavacelava.

    Basically it means that you find the specific n that gives the maximum probability (for all values of n) and you return that specific value of n.
