Statistics for the LHC: Progress, challenges, and future

Kyle S. Cranmer

    Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

    Abstract

    The Large Hadron Collider offers tremendous potential for the discovery of new physics and poses many challenges to the statistical techniques used within High Energy Physics. I will review some of the significant progress that has been made since the PhyStat 2005 conference in Oxford and highlight some of the most important outstanding issues. I will also present some ideas for future developments within the field and advocate a progressive form of publication.
