Synopsis:

The student will gain theoretical and practical experience with the use of advanced techniques of statistical data analysis, which are currently used in the processing of data in high-energy physics experiments. These include, for example, unfolding, methods based on the Kálmán filter and machine learning methods such as decision trees and neural networks. The theoretical foundations of regression and classification will be discussed. The student will acquire practical knowledge of methods related to data pre-processing, training of machine learning algorithms (supervised machine learning), reliability validation (bias) and overtraining (overtraining). The aim of the exercise is to analyze real experimental data from the open HEPData database and in practice to compare classifiers obtained by different methods.

Requirements:
Syllabus of lectures:

1. Theory of statistical regression and inference

2. Statistical deconvolution methods

3. Optimization and the Kálmán filter

4. Non-parametric methods of regression and classification

4.1. Decision trees
