  Probability and computing: randomization and probabilistic techniques in algorithms and data analysis (2nd ed.)
Mitzenmacher M., Upfal E.,  Cambridge University Press, New York, NY, 2017. 484 pp. Type: Book (978-1-107154-88-9)

It is one of the great paradoxes of modern science that useful computation can be done by making random choices. This insight would be impressive even if the computation in question were contrived, but in many cases probabilistic algorithms can so...

  Discrete probability models and methods: probability on graphs and trees, Markov chains and random fields, entropy and coding
Brémaud P.,  Springer International Publishing, New York, NY, 2017. 559 pp. Type: Book (978-3-319434-75-9)

Due to advances in both theory and practice, there has been a recent explosion in courses on network science and data science. These demand a solid background in probabilistic methods....

  Probability on trees and networks
Lyons R., Peres Y.,  Cambridge University Press, New York, NY, 2016.Type: Book (9781107160156)

Information and communications technology (ICT) specialists might be interested in this tough mathematical book. For sure, this is not a work that can be easily read to relax in the evening, since a lot of background knowledge is necessary to unde...

  Probability logics: probability-based formalization of uncertain reasoning
Ognjanović Z., Rašković M., Marković Z.,  Springer International Publishing, New York, NY, 2016. 215 pp. Type: Book (978-3-319470-11-5)

Combinations of probability and logic have been a topic of interest since the seminal work of Boole [1], and they have always occupied a place of relevance in foundational studies of probability. However, the direction of development has been cons...

  Recent contributions in intelligent systems
Sgurev V., Yager R., Kacprzyk J., Atanassov K.,  Springer International Publishing, New York, NY, 2016. 390 pp. Type: Book (978-3-319414-37-9)

This is a collection of the best papers from the 2012 IEEE Intelligent Systems Conference, which was held in Sofia, Bulgaria in September 2012. The average length of the papers in this volume is 20 pages. Since there are 20 papers in all, I will t...

  Bayesian methods in the search for MH370
Davey S., Gordon N., Holland I., Rutten M., Williams J.,  Springer International Publishing, New York, NY, 2016. 114 pp. Type: Book

One can seldom consider mathematics-heavy books as exciting page-turners. Yet, Bayesian methods in the search for MH370 is so far the best one I have encountered that could stand up to such a description. Published by Springer in its “...

   Bayesian multi-tensor factorization
Khan S., Leppäaho E., Kaski S.  Machine Learning 105(2): 233-253, 2016. Type: Article

Data mining is increasingly facing the problem of extracting new knowledge from experimental data collected from complex phenomena. To extract hidden information, such datasets can be decomposed into the components that underlie them. Because data...

  Imprecise random variables, random sets, and Monte Carlo simulation
Fetz T., Oberguggenberger M.  International Journal of Approximate Reasoning 78(C): 252-264, 2016. Type: Article

The presented work considers the problem of evaluating upper and lower probabilities in systems characterized by imprecise random variables. According to the authors, “Methods of imprecise probability have increasingly attracted interest in ...
