Physics Department Summer Lectures

"Introduction to Statistics in High-Energy Physics"

Presented by Xin Qian

Friday, July 19, 2019, 12:30 pm — Small Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

In this lecture, I will introduce some basic statistical concepts commonly used in the data analysis of high-energy physics experiments. I will review the basic procedure in setting confidence intervals. Some advanced topics in data unfolding, selection of test statistics, and usage of linear algebra in reducing computation will be touched upon.
