/**
*
* Aggregates two probability estimates from independent sources about the occurrence of
* a **single** event **a**. It returns the aggregated probability of occurrence
* of the event **a**. The assumption here is that the two probabilities
* (estimates) are not correlated with each other and the **common prior**
* probability of **a** is **0.5**.
*
* For a detailed explanation, refer to the paper titled
* *[Bayesian Group Belief by Franz Dietrich](http://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s00355-010-0453-x)*
* published in Social Choice and Welfare October 2010, Volume 35, Issue 4, pp 595–626.
*
* @memberof probability
* @param {number} pa1 first estimate of probability of occurrence of event **a**.
* @param {number} pa2 second estimate of probability of occurrence of event **a**.
* @return {number} the aggregated probability.
* @example
* aggregate( 0.5, 0.6 );
* // returns 0.6
* aggregate( 0.5, 0.4 );
* // returns 0.4
* aggregate( 0.6, 0.6 );
* // returns 0.6923076923076923
* aggregate( 0.4, 0.6 );
* // returns 0.5
