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 Vietri sul Mare (Salerno\, Italy) from 3rd to 7th of Jun
e 2013.\nLectures are subdivided into five sections: the first section wil
l be an introduction to probability theory\, including fundamental definit
ions of frequentist and Bayesian approaches to probability. The second sec
tion is devoted to statistical methods\, including parameter estimates\, m
aximum likelihood and chi-squared methods. The third section will provide
an overview of statistical methods adopted to define confidence intervals
and upper limits. The fourth section will cover multivariate techniques\,
including artificial neural networks and boosted decision trees. Finally\,
the fifth section will present the state-of-the-art software tools used f
or statistical evaluations.\nTwo afternoon sessions devoted to practical i
mplementations and exercises are foreseen.\nRegistration deadline is April
1st.\n\n This school is co-funded by INFN\, INFN - Sezione di Napoli a
nd by the Department of Physics of University "Federico II"\, Naples.\n\nh
