Data Science Lecture: Basics of statistical data analysis

by Prof. Glen Cowan (Royal Holloway, University of London)


This event is part of a series of lectures and tutorials on data science topics hosted by the Platform for Challenges in Data Science in the excellence cluster "Quantum Universe" between DESY and Universität Hamburg. It is intended specifically for the PhD students in the cluster but younger and more senior members are of course also welcome.

This lecture will cover a basic introduction to frequentist vs Bayesian statistics and the basics of fitting, hypothesis tests and asymptotic limit setting.
