KurzbeschreibungStatistical methods are increasingly important in modern science. In this course we will build an understanding of statistical methods beyond Bayesian inference. These include information content of experiments through relative entropy and ABC methods for difficult problem when the likelihood cannot be calculated. We will also cover topics which are now commonly used in cosmology.
Lernziel
InhaltIn this course we will build an understanding of statistical methods beyond Bayesian inference. These include information content of experiments through relative entropy and ABC methods for difficult problem when the likelihood cannot be calculated. We will also cover topics, such as power spectrum estimation, which are now commonly used in cosmology.
Voraussetzungen / BesonderesIn this course we will assume good knowledge of statistical inference, so it is recommended that students have taken 'Statistical Methods in Cosmology and Astrophysics' or equivalent.
