AAS Special Sessions in AstroStatistics

HEAD 2000: Special Tutorial Workshop

On Beyond Chi^2 (and Bevington): Making the Most of Your Poisson Data

Our panel is a mixture of statisticians, those building software for data analysis; and astrophyscists. Each will briefly go through new methods and old problems from a range of wave-lengths; and open it up to a lot of discussion ("I can't believe the F-test doesn't work for finding asorption lines in my spectrum! I've been using it for decades!" "Do you mean there's a better way to test for a periodic signal in my TeV data?" etc etc etc)
