Time: 1430 MW
Location: Physics & Nanotechnology 120

Modern astrophysics research relies on sophisticated statistical methods to interpret and analyze the large amount of data characteristic of new experiments. In this course, students will be introduced to statistical analysis techniques to interpret/analyze large data sets from astrophysical experiments. Applications of
the principles/methods of analysis to current research will be covered. For senior undergraduate/graduate students in Physics/Astronomy.
