Bayesian Field Theory
by J. C. Lemm
Publisher: arXiv.org 2000
Number of pages: 200
Bayesian field theory denotes a nonparametric Bayesian approach for learning functions from observational data. Based on the principles of Bayesian statistics, a particular Bayesian field theory is defined by combining two models: 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.

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.

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.

This is a practical introduction to randomness and data analysis, in particular in the context of computer simulations. At the beginning, the most basics concepts of probability are given, in particular discrete and continuous random variables.
