Structure / topics / contents
Statistical methods for data analysis in particle and astrophysics will be discussed. These methods are necessary to interpret experimental results and compare them to theory. More advanced topics (such as machine learning and unfolding) will also be introduced.

This course investigates the theoretical motivations and teaches practical computational implementation using python or C++.

Problem sets will be derived from recent developments in elementary physics and astrophysics.
