Structure / topics / contents
Statistical methods for data analysis in particle and astrophysics will be discusses. These methods are necessary to interpret experimental results and compare them to theory. In addition, the course gives an introduction to machine learning methods (such as neuronal networks and boosted decision trees) which are commonly used in data analysis.

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

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