hello everyone,I'm from china,and i need your help.there are some words in a paper as follows :

The potential functions [tex]V_{i}[/tex] are defined as the negative log posterior of the two segments’ ordinal depths conditioned on the curve cues, weighted by the curve length |Ci|

And probably the symbol Pr is short for Posterior.
but what dose the Pr mean?
thank you very much!

Is it in the "The 2.1-D Sketch" paper again? I don't seem to find that symbol in there... Where exactly is it?

could you tell me how to understand Pr( [tex]{d_{i}}^{M}_{i=1})[/tex]

I'm very glad to meet you again.you're so friendly.

My guess is that Pr just denotes the probability function. That is, [tex]Pr(\{d_i\}_{i=1}^N)[/tex] denotes the probability that [tex]\{d_i\}_{i=1}^N[/tex] is assumed.
This makes sense because the wikipedia page on Gibbs distribution http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gibbs_measure looks familiar to your article.
