Vorlesung: Data Analysis

Die Vorlesung findet nur im Wintersemester und in englischer Sprache statt.

Dozent: Prof. Dr. Allen Caldwell

Zeit: Montag von 16.00 bis 18.00 Uhr

Ort: PH 227 im TUM Physik-Department

Vor den Vorlesungen findet eine Übung im CIP-Raum statt (Montag, 14.00 bis 15.45 Uhr).


  • Basics of probability theory
  • The fundamental distributions
  • Construction of frequentist confidence intervals
  • Bayesian probability and credibility intervals  
  • Parameter estimation and limit setting
  • Model evaluation (goodness of fit)
  • Model comparison and model selection
  • Multivariate approaches: neural networks, decision trees, etc as time allows
  • Introduction to modern data analysis tools

The topics will be introduced in the lectures. Many exercises will require numerical calculations, so an ability to program simple algorithms and produce graphical displays is required. The course grade will be based on solutions to the exercises.
