Science often deals with hard-to-see phenomena, and they only stand out and become real when viewed through the lens of complex statistical tools. This book is not a textbook about statistics applied to science - there are already many excellent books to choose from - rather, it tries to give an overview of the basic principles that physical scientists use to analyze their data and bring out the order of Nature from the fog of background noise.

- Edoardo Milotti is Professor of Physics at the University of Trieste, Italy. After working mostly in experimental particle physics, he has also authored papers on noise processes in physics, and on the physics of cancer. His longtime research interests are in the direction of the analysis of experimental data and in the modeling of complex phenomena. He has published over 200 scientific papers in peer-reviewed scientific journals. He lives in Trieste, Italy, with his wife Alessandra.
