Miniworkshop on Statistical Tools

chaired by Olaf Behnke (DESY), Claus Kleinwort (DESY), Stefan Schmitt (DESY)
Thursday, June 19, 2008 from to (Europe/Berlin)
at DESY ( Sem. 2 )
Hamburg
Description
This is the first workshop on statistical tools in the Terascale alliance. It is devoted to
three issues expected to be relevant for data analyses at ATLAS and CMS:
1. Optimal Signal/Background Separation
2. Likelihood fits e.g. for determination of signals and model parameters
3. Limits determination
