**Statistical Field Theory: An Introduction to Exactly Solved Models in Statistical Physics**

Oxford University Press | 2009 | ISBN: 0199547580 | 778 pages | PDF | 15 MB

This book provides a thorough introduction to the fascinating world of phase transitions as well as many related topics, including random walks, combinatorial problems, quantum field theory and S-matrix. Fundamental concepts of phase transitions, such as order parameters, spontaneous symmetry breaking, scaling transformations, conformal symmetry, and anomalous dimensions, have deeply changed the modern vision of many areas of physics, leading to remarkable developments in statistical mechanics, elementary particle theory, condensed matter physics and string theory.

Inference Control in Statistical Databases: From Theory to Practice

17 November 2010

**Inference Control in Statistical Databases: From Theory to Practice**

DJVUInference control in statistical databases, also known as statistical disclosure limitation or statistical confidentiality, is about finding tradeoffs to the tension between the increasing societal need for accurate statistical data and the legal and ethical obligation to protect privacy of individuals and enterprises which are the source of data for producing statistics. Techniques used by intruders to make inferences compromising privacy increasingly draw on data mining, record linkage, knowledge discovery, and data analysis and thus statistical inference control becomes an integral part of computer science. This coherent state-of-the-art survey presents some of the most recent work in the field. The papers presented together with an introduction are organized in topical sections on tabular data protection, microdata protection, and software and user case studies. ...

Statistical Approach to Quantum Field Theory An Introduction

22 August 2013

**Andreas Wipf, "Statistical Approach to Quantum Field Theory: An Introduction"**

2012 | ISBN: 3642331041 | 400 pages | PDF | 9 MB

Over the past few decades the powerful methods of statistical physics and Euclidean quantum field theory have moved closer together, with common tools based on the use of path integrals. The interpretation of Euclidean field theories as particular systems of statistical physics has opened up new avenues for understanding strongly coupled quantum systems or quantum field theories at zero or finite temperatures. Accordingly, the first chapters of this book contain a self-contained introduction to path integrals in Euclidean quantum mechanics and statistical mechanics. The resulting high-dimensional integrals can be estimated with the help of Monte Carlo simulations based on Markov processes. The most commonly used algorithms are presented in detail so as to prepare the reader for the use of high-performance computers as an "experimental" tool for this burgeoning field of theoretical physics. Several chapters are then devoted to an introduction to simple lattice field theories and a variety of spin systems with discrete and continuous spins, where the ubiquitous Ising model serves as an ideal guide for introducing the fascinating area of phase transitions. As an alternative to the lattice formulation of quantum field theories, variants of the flexible renormalization group methods are discussed in detail. Since, according to our present-day knowledge, all fundamental interactions in nature are described by gauge theories, the remaining chapters of the book deal with gauge theories without and with matter. This text is based on course-tested notes for graduate students and, as such, its style is essentially pedagogical, requiring only some basics of mathematics, statistical physics, and quantum field theory. Yet it also contains some more sophisticated concepts which may be useful to researchers in the field. Each chapter ends with a number of problems - guiding the reader to a deeper understanding of some of the material presented in the main text - and, in most cases, also features some listings of short, useful computer programs.

Principles of Experimental Psychopathology: Essays in Honor of Brendan A. Maher

30 September 2011

**Principles of Experimental Psychopathology: Essays in Honor of Brendan A. Maher**

Principles of Experimental Psychopathology celebrates the contributions of Brendan A. Maher to the development and emergence of experimental psychopathology as a sub-discipline of psychological science. Several current research programs are discussed, and contributors provide rich examples of how the methods of experimental psychology and allied disciplines have been applied to the study of schizophrenia and other psychopathological conditions through a strong understanding of normative processes, genetics, and neuroscience. In the opening chapter of the volume, Maher discusses his view of the formation of delusional thought and the methodological approach he has taken in studying this area. Maher's influence is evident throughout the volume, as contributors explore schizophrenia and other disorders from alternative methodological viewpoints. This book will be an invaluable resource for advanced scholars and graduate students alike who are committed to psychological science as a laboratory-based discipline that has real-world implications. ...

Computational Methods in Biometric Authentication: Statistical Methods for Performance Evaluation

**Computational Methods in Biometric Authentication: Statistical Methods for Performance Evaluation**

Publisher: Springer | 2010 | PDF | 316 pages | ISBN: 1849962014 | 3Mb

Biometrics, the science of using physical traits to identify individuals, is playing an increasing role in our security-conscious society and across the globe. Biometric authentication, or bioauthentication, systems are being used to secure everything from amusement parks to bank accounts to military installations. Yet developments in this field have not been matched by an equivalent improvement in the statistical methods for evaluating these systems. Compensating for this need, this unique text/reference provides a basic statistical methodology for practitioners and testers of bioauthentication devices, supplying a set of rigorous statistical methods for evaluating biometric authentication systems. This framework of methods can be extended and generalized for a wide range of applications and tests. This is the first single resource on statistical methods for estimation and comparison of the performance of biometric authentication systems.
