A Public Lecture by: Prof. Louis Lyons - 2017

What is Probability? The Bayes and Frequentist Approaches

In this lecture, Professor Louis Lyons of the University of Oxford, UK, will explain the Bayesian and Frequentist Schools of thoughts. The two different approaches will be explained by using examples both from every day life and from the world of physics. Cases where the resulting answers differ significantly will also be examined in a simple way to make it easily understandable to those with little previous knowledge of statistics.

About the Speaker

Prof. Louis Lyons is a member of the Oxford Physics Department and also Imperial College London. He has been working on the CMS experiment at CERN, while in the past he worked on the DELPHI experiment at CERN and the CDF experiment at Fermilab. He has special interest in statistics as applied to the particle physics analyses, and wrote a very famous book on "Statistics for Nuclear and Particle Physicists". He is the founder of the PHYSTAT series of Conferences and Workshops on statistical issues in Particle Physics, Astrophysics and Cosmology. These conferences greatly helped and modernized the statistical concepts and tools used in the analysis of data in LHC era.
