Lectures on Noise Sensitivity and Percolation
by Christophe Garban, Jeffrey E. Steif
Publisher: arXiv 2011
Number of pages: 150
The goal of this set of lectures is to combine two seemingly unrelated topics: (1) The study of Boolean functions, a field particularly active in computer science; (2) Some models in statistical physics, mostly percolation.

The book on the theory of general state space Markov chains, and its application to time series analysis, operations research and systems and control theory. An advanced graduate text and a monograph treating the stability of Markov chains.

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.

A particular Bayesian field theory is defined by combining a likelihood model, providing a probabilistic description of the measurement process, and a prior model, providing the information necessary to generalize from training to non-training data.

This text is an attempt to give a reasonably self-contained presentation of the basic theory of stochastic partial differential equations, taking for granted basic measure theory, functional analysis and probability theory, but nothing else.
