Summer School in Statistics for Astronomers V
June 1-6, 2009
The fifth annual Penn State Summer School in Statistics for Astronomers will be held at Penn State. This is a 6-day course in fundamental statistical inference designed to provide physical scientists, and graduate students, with a strong conceptual foundation in modern statistics and to develop a repertoire of well-established techniques applicable to observational astronomy and physics. Classroom instruction is interspersed with hands-on analysis of astronomical data using the public-domain R software package. The course is taught by a team of statistics and astronomy professors with opportunity for discussion of methodological issues.
Statistical techniques covered include:
The 2009 Summer School will be modeled on the last four Penn State Summer Schools and the two Indian Institute of Astrophysics-Penn State Summer School; see 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008 lecture notes for the Penn State Summer Schools.
