Sophisticated Probabilistic Information Transfer Toolkit Letter
Dear Colleagues,
New book by
Olga Zeydina and Bernard Beauzamy: Probabilistic Information Transfer. ISBN: 9782952145862, ISSN : 17671175. Size 15,3 x 24 cm. Hardcover, 208 pages.
In real life situations, one rarely has desirably detailed information.
It is sometimes incomplete, sometimes corrupted, or with missing or erroneous data.
Conversely, some pieces of information do exist. Therefore, there is a natural wish: to try to use the existing information in order to reconstruct some missing items.
However, this should be done with two constraints:
First, one should not add any artificial information, such as model assumptions (for instance, that some growth is linear, or that some law is Gaussian) ;
Second, the result should be of probabilistic nature: we do not want a precise value for the reconstruction, but a probability law, which allows estimation of the uncertainties.
This is precisely the topic of this book.
We show how to “propagate” the information, from a place where it exists to a place where we want to use it;
this propagation deteriorates with the distance, somewhat as a gravitational field decreases with the distance.
The book is organized in three parts:
the first part presents the basic rules, accessible with no specific expertise in probabilities;
the second presents the applications to real world problems, and the third part gives the theory.
This is a situation not so common these days: a new mathematical theory, developed by us, in order to meet a need initially expressed by the industry (namely Framatome, 2003).
Existing applications are now numerous: classifying industrial objects (Air Liquide), evaluating a pollution (Total), estimating water quality in rivers (European Environment Agency), controlling the safety in a nuclear reactor (Institut de Radioprotection et de Surete Nucleaire), and so on.
The book can be bought on line.
Thank you for your interest
