DESCRIPTION:The INFN School Of Statistics intends to provide an overview o
f statistical methods and tools used in particle\, astro-particle and nucl
ear physics.\nThis School is targeted towards physicists interested in dat
a analysis ranging from PhD students to senior physicists willing to exten
d their knowledge and skills in the field of statistical methods. The Scho
ol takes place in Paestum (Salerno\, Italy) from 3rd to 7th of June 2019.\
nLectures are subdivided into five sections: the first section will be an
introduction to probability theory\, including fundamental definitions of
frequentist and Bayesian approaches to probability. The second section is
devoted to statistical methods\, including parameter estimates\, maximum l
ikelihood and chi-squared methods. The third section will provide an overv
iew of statistical methods adopted to define confidence intervals and uppe
r limits. The fourth section will cover multivariate techniques\, includin
g artificial neural networks and boosted decision trees. Finally\, the fif
th section will present the state-of-the-art software tools used for stati
stical evaluations with interactive exercises.\n\nFor further information\
