Speaker

Matthias Ulrich Mozer (KIT - Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (DE))

Description

The presentation will provide insight into the treatment of statistical problems by particle physicists, which is commonly driven by practical considerations much more than mathematical reasoning. Common pitfalls and their origin will be discussed using real life (but anonymized) examples, touching on topics such as unfolding and limit setting.
