What is it about?
Free energy is at the base of many biological and physical processes. It can be quantified experimentally or computationally by employing proper statistical tools. Here we devise a statistical framework which takes advantage of a prior expectation on the free energy value to improve its estimation.

Why is it important?
Free energy estimation is addressed explicitly as a regularization problem which in turns allows to embed a prior in the statistical framework.
