The INFN School Of Statistics intends to provide an overview of statistical methods and tools used in particle, astro-particle and nuclear physics.
This School is targeted towards physicists interested in data analysis ranging from PhD students to senior physicists willing to extend their knowledge and skills in the field of statistical methods. The School takes place in Paestum (Salerno, Italy) from 3rd to 7th of June 2019.
Lectures are subdivided into five sections: introduction to probability theory, statistical methods, overview of statistical methods adopted to define confidence intervals and upper limits, multivariate techniques and state-of-the-art software tools used for statistical evaluations with interactive exercises. The latter will include a hands-on machine learning hackathon, based on Large Hadron Collider datasets.
