Blog updates about the Voynich Manuscript

By Gordon Rugg

I’ve posted a couple of new articles about the Voynich Manuscript on the Hyde and Rugg blog site.

One is a detailed discussion of mistakes and misunderstandings in the Montemurro and Zanette article about the Voynich Manuscript:

The other is about how complex results can come from very simple processes, and may occur accidentally, with particular reference to the Voynich Manuscript:

I’ll add another article at some point about other statistical issues relating to the Voynich Manuscript and the hoax hypothesis.
