Introduction to Randomness and Statistics
by Alexander K. Hartmann
Publisher: arXiv 2009
Number of pages: 95
This text provides 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. The text is basically self-contained, comes with several example C programs and contains eight practical exercises.

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.

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.

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.

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.
