Examples

If all states of the world are equiprobable, this is a partial pooling equilibrium.

It can then be argued that the competing stories should initially be viewed as equiprobable, and that, in turn, will enable one to place an upper bound on the probability of the relevant story advanced by van Inwagen.

Most often one makes the most pessimistic assumption that all the possible states of the device are equiprobable.

'God's existence and nonexistence are exactly equiprobable.'

Nevertheless, it is a common error, which we shall meet again, to leap from the premise that the question of God's existence is in principle unanswerable to the conclusion that his existence and his nonexistence are equiprobable.

We should acknowledge that we are never going to have the complete mutationbymutation account of the evolution of any structure, and admit that, therefore, every alternative is equiprobable.
Daniel Dennett: Intelligent design? Show me the science  The Panda's Thumb

Entropy is maximised when all 4 ok, ignoring the 5th for now bases are equiprobable, and Kolgomorov complexity when the string is random.

NOTE: a 1 character string with 32 possible equiprobable symbols (like{0,1,2…31}) has the same channel capacity as 5 coin string with 2 alphabetic symbols (like {0,1}), the math works out the same.

Given an alphabet of N equiprobable symbols, we can now use equation [1]:

Once the coin has been tossed, the system produces an amount of information that is a function of the possible outputs, in this case 2 equiprobable symbols, and equal to the data deficit that it removes.
