Fiducial inference, Advanced Statistics

The problematic and enigmatic theory of an inference introduced by the Fisher, which extracts a probability distribution for the parameter on the basis of the data without having first assigned parameter any prior distribution. The results of such an inference are not the acceptance or the rejection of the hypothesis, not a decision, but the probability distribution of the special kind.
