Title  Probability and Statistics for Particle Physics 
Author(s)  Ma??a, Carlos 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  X, 244 p. 27 illus., 11 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book comprehensively presents the basic concepts of probability and Bayesian inference with sufficient generality to make them applicable to current problems in scientific research. The first chapter provides the fundamentals of probability theory that are essential for the analysis of random phenomena. The second chapter includes a full and pragmatic review of the Bayesian methods that constitute a natural and coherent framework with enough freedom to analyze all the information available from experimental data in a conceptually simple manner. The third chapter presents the basic Monte Carlo techniques used in scientific research, allowing a large variety of problems to be handled difficult to tackle by other procedures. The author also introduces a basic algorithm, which enables readers to simulate samples from simple distribution, and describes useful cases for researchers in particle physics.The final chapter is devoted to the basic ideas of Information Theory, which are important in the Bayesian methodology. This highly readable book is appropriate for graduatelevel courses, while at the same time being useful for scientific researches in general and for physicists in particular since most of the examples are from the field of Particle Physics.

Title  Nonequilibrium Statistical Physics with Application to Disordered Systems 
Author(s)  C??ceres, Manuel Osvaldo 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XXIV, 556 p. 51 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  This textbook is the result of the enhancement of several courses on nonequilibrium statistics, stochastic processes, stochastic differential equations, anomalous diffusion and disorder. The target audience includes students of physics, mathematics, biology, chemistry, and engineering at undergraduate and graduate level with a grasp of the basic elements of mathematics and physics of the fourth year of a typical undergraduate course. The littleknown physical and mathematical concepts are described in sections and specific exercises throughout the text, as well as in appendices. Physicalmathematical motivation is the main driving force for the development of this text. It presents the academic topics of probability theory and stochastic processes as well as new educational aspects in the presentation of nonequilibrium statistical theory and stochastic differential equations.. In particular it discusses the problem of irreversibility in that context and the dynamics of FokkerPlanck. An introduction on fluctuations around metastable and unstable points are given. It also describes relaxation theory of nonstationary Markov periodic in time systems. The theory of finite and infinite transport in disordered networks, with a discussion of the issue of anomalous diffusion is introduced. Further, it provides the basis for establishing the relationship between quantum aspects of the theory of linear response and the calculation of diffusion coefficients in amorphous systems

Title  Statistical Methods for Data Analysis in Particle Physics 
Author(s)  Lista, Luca 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XIX, 172 p. 63 illus., 59 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This concise set of coursebased notes provides the reader with the main concepts and tools to perform statistical analysis of experimental data, in particular in the field of highenergy physics (HEP). First, an introduction to probability theory and basic statistics is given, mainly as reminder from advanced undergraduate studies, yet also in view to clearly distinguish the Frequentist versus Bayesian approaches and interpretations in subsequent applications. More advanced concepts and applications are gradually introduced, culminating in the chapter on upper limits as many applications in HEP concern hypothesis testing, where often the main goal is to provide better and better limits so as to be able to distinguish eventually between competing hypotheses or to rule out some of them altogether. Many worked examples will help newcomers to the field and graduate students to understand the pitfalls in applying theoretical concepts to actual data

Title  Bayesian Inference : Data Evaluation and Decisions 
Author(s)  Harney, Hanns Ludwig 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XIII, 243 p. 39 illus., 3 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This new edition offers a comprehensive introduction to the analysis of data using Bayes rule. It generalizes Gaussian error intervals to situations in which the data follow distributions other than Gaussian. This is particularly useful when the observed parameter is barely above the background or the histogram of multiparametric data contains many empty bins, so that the determination of the validity of a theory cannot be based on the chisquaredcriterion. In addition to the solutions of practical problems, this approach provides an epistemic insight: the logic of quantum mechanics is obtained as the logic of unbiased inference from counting data. New sections feature factorizing parameters, commuting parameters, observables in quantum mechanics, the art of fitting with coherent and with incoherent alternatives and fitting with multinomial distribution. Additional problems and examples help deepen the knowledge. Requiring no knowledge of quantum mechanics, the book is written on introductory level, with many examples and exercises, for advanced undergraduate and graduate students in the physical sciences, planning to, or working in, fields such as medical physics, nuclear physics, quantum mechanics, and chaos

Title  Statistical Mechanics for Athermal Fluctuation : NonGaussian Noise in Physics 
Author(s)  Kanazawa, Kiyoshi 
Publication  Singapore, Springer Singapore, 2017. 
Description  XVI, 222 p. 53 illus., 46 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  The author investigates athermal fluctuation from the viewpoints of statistical mechanics in this thesis. Stochastic methods are theoretically very powerful in describing fluctuation of thermodynamic quantities in small systems on the level of a single trajectory and have been recently developed on the basis of stochastic thermodynamics. This thesis proposes, for the first time, a systematic framework to describe athermal fluctuation, developing stochastic thermodynamics for nonGaussian processes, while thermal fluctuations are mainly addressed from the viewpoint of Gaussian stochastic processes in most of the conventional studies. First, the book provides an elementary introduction to the stochastic processes and stochastic thermodynamics. The author derives a Langevinlike equation with nonGaussian noise as a minimal stochastic model for athermal systems, and its analytical solution by developing systematic expansions is shown as the main result. Furthermore, the au thor shows a thermodynamic framework for such nonGaussian fluctuations, and studies some thermodynamics phenomena, i.e. heat conduction and energy pumping, which shows distinct characteristics from conventional thermodynamics. The theory introduced in the book would be a systematic foundation to describe dynamics of athermal fluctuation quantitatively and to analyze their thermodynamic properties on the basis of stochastic methods

Title  Event Classification in Liquid Scintillator Using PMT Hit Patterns : for Neutrinoless Double Beta Decay Searches 
Author(s)  Dunger, Jack 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2019. 
Description  XVII, 223 p. 166 illus., 102 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  The search for neutrinoless double beta decay is one of the highest priority areas in particle physics today; it could provide insights to the nature of neutrino masses (currently not explained by the Standard Model) as well as how the universe survived its early stages. One promising experimental approach involves the use of large volumes of isotopeloaded liquid scintillator, but new techniques for background identification and suppression must be developed in order to reach the required sensitivity levels and clearly distinguish the signal. The results from this thesis constitute a significant advance in this area, laying the groundwork for several highly effective and novel approaches based on a detailed evaluation of stateoftheart detector characteristics. This well written thesis includes a particularly clear and comprehensive description of the theoretical motivations as well as impressively demonstrating the effective use of diverse statistical techniques. The professionally constructed signal extraction framework contains clever algorithmic solutions to efficient error propagation in multidimensional space. In general, the techniques developed in this work will have a notable impact on the field

Title  Risk and the Theory of Security Risk Assessment 
Author(s)  Young, Carl S 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2019. 
Description  XXIII, 274 p. 81 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book provides the conceptual foundation of security risk assessment and thereby enables reasoning about risk from first principles. It presents the underlying theory that is the basis of a rigorous and universally applicable security risk assessment methodology. Furthermore, the book identifies and explores concepts with profound operational implications that have traditionally been sources of ambiguity if not confusion in security risk management. Notably, the text provides a simple quantitative model for complexity, a significant driver of risk that is typically not addressed in securityrelated contexts. Risk and The Theory of Security Risk Assessment is a primer of security risk assessment pedagogy, but it also provides methods and metrics to actually estimate the magnitude of security risk. Concepts are explained using numerous examples, which are at times both enlightening and entertaining. As a result, the book bridges a longstanding gap between theory and practice, and therefore will be a useful reference to students, academics and security practitioners.
