Book Description
This book demonstrates how nonlinear/nonGaussian Bayesian time series estimation methods were used to produce a probability distribution of potential MH370 flight paths.
It provides details of how the probabilistic models of aircraft flight dynamics, satellite communication system measurements, environmental effects and radar data were constructed and calibrated. The probability distribution was used to define the search zone in the southern Indian Ocean.
The book describes particlefilter based numerical calculation of the aircraft flightpath probability distribution and validates the method using data from several of the involved aircraft’s previous flights. Finally it is shown how the Reunion Island flaperon debris find affects the search probability distribution.

The Vortex and the Jet: Beauty and Mystery of Flight
This open access book is an introduction for the lay reader to understand the basics of flight. It gives great introduction to the inner working of the modern jet engine and explains the airflow phenomena in plain language.

Flight Physics  Models, Techniques and Technologies (K. Volkov)
Focuses on the synthesis of the fundamental disciplines and practical applications involved in the investigation, description, and analysis of aircraft flight including applied aerodynamics, aircraft propulsion, flight performance, stability, and control.

Bayes Rules! An Introduction to Applied Bayesian Modeling
An engaging, sophisticated, and fun introduction to the field of Bayesian statistics, it brings the power of modern Bayesian thinking, modeling, and computing to a broad audience. Integrates R code, including RStan modeling tools, bayesrules package.

O'Reilly® Think Bayes: Bayesian Statistics in Python
If you know how to program, you're ready to tackle Bayesian statistics. With this book, you'll learn how to solve statistical problems with Python code instead of mathematical formulas, using discrete probability distributions rather than continuous mathematics.

Bayesian Data Analysis (Andrew Gelman, et al.)
This classic book is widely considered the leading text on Bayesian methods, lauded for its accessible, practical approach to analyzing data and solving research problems. It takes an applied approach to analysis using uptodate Bayesian methods.

Bayesian Methods for Hackers: Probabilistic Programming
This book illuminates Bayesian inference through probabilistic programming with the powerful PyMC language and the closely related Python tools NumPy, SciPy, Matplotlib, through practical examples and computation  no advanced mathematics required.

Bayesian Reasoning and Machine Learning (David Barber)
This practical introduction is ideally suited to computer scientists without a background in calculus and linear algebra. You'll develop analytical and problemsolving skills that equip them for the real world. Numerous examples and exercises are provided.
