Abstract : Theories and experiments concerning the generation and testing of hypotheses are described. The theories and experiments are abstract but suggestions for application to more realistic situations are given. The study is based primarily on the search for order in the information or data observed. Most of the report is concerned with two subjects. The first of these is a theory of inductive inference that does not require exhaustive enumeration of hypotheses. The second is computer experiments that generate hypotheses on the basis of simple objects and relationships that are observed. (Author)
