Experimental Elasticity: A Manual for the Laboratory
by G.F.C. Searle
Publisher: Cambridge University Press 1908
Number of pages: 220
G. F. C. Searle (1864-1954) was a British physicist who made notable contributions to the development of laboratory physics and theories of electromagnetic mass. First published in 1933, as the second edition of a 1908 original, this book was based on the manuscript notes prepared by Searle for the use of students attending his practical physics classes at the Cavendish Laboratory, Cambridge.

These web documents contain supplementary material for laboratory work in the introductory physics course. They provide a point of view which some laboratory manuals lack. A large part of this material commonly goes by the name 'error analysis'.
Contents: Fizeau-Foucault apparatus; Ives-Stilwell experiment; Oxford Electric Bell; Roemer's determination of the speed of light; Sagnac effect; Trouton-Noble experiment; De Sitter double star experiment; Atwood machine; Barton's pendulums; etc.

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.
