Probability, physics, and the coin toss
When you flip a coin to decide an issue, you assume that the coin will not land on its side and, perhaps less consciously, that the coin is flipped end over end. What happens if those assumptions are relaxed?
Teaching Bayesian Model Comparison With the Three-Sided Coin
This article introduces the problem of determining the probability that a rotating and bouncing cylinder (i.e., flipped coin) will land and come to rest on its edge.
Thickness of a three-sided coin: A molecular dynamics study
This Letter presents a numerical study across parameter space to calculate the aspect ratio (ratio of length to diameter) of a fair “three-sided coin”: a cylinder that when tossed, has equal probabilities of landing heads, tails, or sideways.
