This volume, arising from the 1998 MaxEnt conference, contains a wide range of applications of Bayesian probability theory and maximum entropy methods to problems of concern in such fields as physics, image processing, coding theory, machine learning, economics, data analysis and various other problems. It presents papers by the leading researchers in the field of Bayesian statistics and maximum entropy methods, and represents the latest developments in the field.

Audience: This book will be of interest to researchers in applied statistics, information theory, coding theory, image and signal processing.
