Practical Statistics for Physics Analyses

Monday, November 28, 2016 - 11:00


SWAN is the platform chosen for the hands-on sessions of the "Practical Statistics for Physics Analyses" ( from 11:00-12:00 in the the Filtration Plant (Building 222-R-001) !

Here you have the program in a nutshell:

  • 28th November:  Likelihoods
  • 29th November: Chi-squared and Goodness of Fit
  • 30th November: Bayes and Frequentism
  • 1st December: Search for New Physics

This will be a 4-day series of 2-hour sessions as part of CERN's Academic Training Course. Each session will consist of a 1-hour lecture followed by one hour of practical computing, which will have exercises based on that day's lecture. While it is possible to follow just the lectures or just the computing exercises, it is highly recommend that, because of the way this course is designed, participants come to both parts.
