Statistics Tools School 2011

chaired by Thomas Schoerner-Sadenius (DESY), Gero Flucke (DESY), Stefan Tapprogge (Johannes Gutenberg-Universität Mainz), Frank Ellinghaus (University of Mainz)
from to (Europe/Berlin)
at Uni Mainz, Institut fuer Physik ( 5th floor, Lorentz-Raum and Minkowski-Raum )
Staudinger Weg 7 55128 Mainz
Description
The school aims at providing education for the most relevant statistics
related tasks, problems and methods for physics data analysis in the 
LHC era.
It is mainly targeted at Graduate (Diploma/Master) and PhD students. 
The sessions consist of lectures interleaved with "hands on" practical work 
(paper, computer exercises and/or tutorials). 
A guided tour to the MAMI accelerator and its experiments completes the program.

The topics covered are:
- General introduction: probabilities, basic distributions
- Parameter estimation, likelihood fits, constrained fits
- Limit determination
- Data unfolding
- Systematic uncertainties
- Multivariate analysis techniques, TMVA
- Optional: Bayesian Analysis Toolkit (BAT)
