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.

A textbook for an undergraduate course in probability and statistics. The prerequisites are two or three semesters of calculus and some linear algebra. Students attending the class include mathematics, engineering, and computer science majors.

Covered topics: stochastic integrals with respect to general semimartingales, stochastic differential equations based on these integrals, integration with respect to Poisson measures, stochastic differential equations for general Markov processes.

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.
