Further Information

Courses are together with exams the building blocks for modules. Please keep in mind that information on the contents, learning outcomes and, especially examination conditions are given on the module level only – see section "Assignment to Modules" above.

additional remarks The lecture will give an introduction into the basic techniques for the analysis of experimental data. It will cover among other things the following topics: - The scientific method - The concept of probability and its interpretations - Bayes' theorem - Random variables - Probability distributions and their moments - Important distributions: binomial, multinomial, Poisson and Gaussian distribution - Multivariate distributions - Marginal and conditional probability distributions - Covariance and correlation coefficient - Functions of (multiple) random variables - Central limit theorem - Gaussian uncertainty propagation for n-dimensional functions and covariance matrix - Statistical and systematic uncertainties - Parameter estimation using the method of least squares - Estimating the goodness of fit - Parameter estimation using the (extended) maximum-likelihood method - Relation between least-squares and maximum-likelihood method - Estimating the significance of a signal
