Lectures on Noise Sensitivity and Percolation
by Christophe Garban, Jeffrey E. Steif
Publisher: arXiv 2011
Number of pages: 150
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.

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.
