First principles of probability theory and some paradoxes in modern biology (comment on “21st century: what is life from the perspective of physics?” by G R Ivanitskii)


Urals State Technical University, ul. Mira 19, Ekaterinburg, 620002, Russian Federation

It is argued that a discussion of two paradoxes in the commented paper is at odds with some points of probability theory and well-known optimization theorems.
