comment Estimating the number of books in the world from randomly chosen overlapping lists
I'm not sure I quite follow. I don't see the correspondence to the problem. Will this work if all the lists have drastically different sizes? Suppose one list has 600 entries and another list has only 50.

@A.S. How does one interpret $P(\mu)$ if $\mu$ is not a proposition but a random variable?

comment Conditional probability and a normal distribution
@A.S. I am mostly looking for a good resource that I can find that approaches questions very similar to this; that would certainly be the most helpful thing in the long run.

@A.S. Observations are orderings of $X_{i,k}$ but you are not necessarily given a complete ranking, only a partial ordering over a subset of all $X_{i,k}$ for fixed $i$.

@A.S. No, I mean that $X_{i,k}$ is drawn from $N(\mu_k,\sigma)$ and similarly $X_{i,k'} \sim N(\mu_{k'},\sigma)$ and if we are given an "observation," it is in the form $X_{i,k} > X_{i,k'}$ or $X_{i,k'} > X_{i,k}$, from which we can make an inference about the values of $\mu_k$ and $\mu_{k'}$.
