Non-Uniform Random Variate Generation
by Luc Devroye

ISBN-13: 9780387963051
Number of pages: 843
Description:
This text is about one small field on the crossroads of statistics, operations research and computer science. Statisticians need random number generators to test and compare estimators before using them in real life. In operations research, random numbers are a key component in large scale simulations. Computer scientists need randomness in program testing, game playing and comparisons of algorithms.

Bayesian Field Theory
by J. C. Lemm - arXiv.org
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.

Lectures on Noise Sensitivity and Percolation
by Christophe Garban, Jeffrey E. Steif - arXiv
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.
