An introduction to the modern approach to the theory of Markov chains. The main goal of this approach is to determine the rate of convergence of a Markov chain to the stationary distribution as a function of the size and geometry of the state space.

The first part deals with discrete inverse problems with a finite number of parameters, while the second part deals with general inverse problems. The book for scientists and applied mathematicians facing the interpretation of experimental data.

Triggered by a recent interesting article on the too frequent incorrect use of probabilistic evidence in courts, the author introduces the basic concepts of probabilistic inference with a toy model, and discusses several important issues.

Selected parts of empirical process theory, with applications to mathematical statistics. The book describes the combinatorial ideas needed to prove maximal inequalities for empirical processes indexed by classes of sets or classes of functions.
