**Introduction to Randomness and Statistics**

by Alexander K. Hartmann

**Publisher**: arXiv 2009**Number of pages**: 95

**Description**:

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.

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.
