    • 14:30 - 16:30 Feldman cousins confidence intervals estimations in high energy physics 2h0'
      In this talk I will present estimation of Feldman Cousins confidence interval which is extensively used to produce results from hep experiments which is a frequentist approach of statistical analysis. The talk content is mostly taken from the paper ‘A Unified Approach to the Classical Statistical Analysis of Small Signals’ by Feldman and Cousins. The talk will also include a comparison of frequentist and bayesian statistics. If time permits then I will also discuss presentation of result in Bayesian statistical framework.
