This is the first book on the maximum entropy and Bayesian methods aimed at senior undergraduates in science and engineering. It takes the mystery out of statistics by showing how a few fundamental rules can be used to tackle a wide variety of problems in data analysis. After explaining the basic principles of Bayesian probability theory, their use is illustrated with a variety of examples ranging from elementary parameter estimation to image processing. Other topics covered include reliability analysis, multivariate optimization, least squares and maximum likelihood, error-propagation, hypothesis testing, maximum entropy, and experimental design. As a logical and unified approach to the subject of data analysis, with a self-contained tutorial approach, this work will be valued by instructors and students alike.

About the Author:

D. S. Sivia, Rutherford Appleton Laboratory and St Catherine's College, Oxford.

Review:


"This book is designed to be a guide to the Bayesian approach. It is certainly not an all-encompassing textbook on the subject but rather describes for the reader how one can use the Bayesian approach for standard data analyses. . . .Well written and at a modest technical level (senior undergraduate)." --Technometrics


"Sivia's tutorial explains the Bayesian approach for analyzing experimental data. In particular, stress is placed on modern developments such as maximum entropy."--Choice
