Advanced Exercises in Practical Physics
by Arthur Schuster
Publisher: Cambridge University Press 1901
Number of pages: 392
This volume is intended for students who, having obtained an elementary knowledge of experimental work in Physics, desire to become acquainted with the principles and methods of accurate measurement. We have endeavoured to confine the apparatus required to that commonly found in laboratories.

These experiments should form part of a physics course which includes class discussions and demonstrations. They were used for several years in a beginners' course in practical physics. The materials and procedure have been worked out in detail.

This is a set of lectures presented at the Theoretical Advanced Study Institute 2009. I provide an introduction to experiments designed to detect WIMP dark matter directly, focusing on building intuitive understanding of the potential WIMP signals.

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.
