Open Statistical Issues in Particle Physics 1

  title={Open Statistical Issues in Particle Physics 1},
  author={L. Lyons}
Many statistical issues arise in the analysis of Particle Physics experiments. We give a brief introduction to Particle Physics, before describing the techniques used by Particle Physicists for dealing with statistical problems, and also some of the open statistical questions. 1. Introduction. Particle Physics tries to delve into the structure of matter at its most basic level. It continues a tradition that dates back to the Greeks 2 or even earlier. In the early days of Chemistry, the smallest… CONTINUE READING
