Courses on statistics

We organize a few courses in statistics to give a broad overview of statistical methods on June 25, 28 and 29 in salle Manuel Forestini (IPAG / OSUG-A) :

Monday June 25 2012

9:00 - 10:00 Exploratory data analysis
10:00 - 12:00 Correlation and regression

14:00 - 15:00 Random sampling
15:00 - 17:00 Statistical Inference

Thursday June 28 2012

8:30 - 10:30 Monte Carlo Simulation with Applications
11:00 - 12:30 Seminar by Tanuka Chattopadhyay : "Fragmentation of Molecular clouds and Initial Mass Function (IMF)"

14:00 - 18:00 Multivariate Analysis

Friday June 29 2012

9:00 - 11:00 Introduction to R programming

11:00 - 13:00 Data analysis and simulation through packages based on your own research
14:00 - 18:00 (contd)

They will be given by my two collaborators from the Calcutta University who will stay for one month (June 19th to July 15th) at IPAG as UJF Invited Professors :

  • Asis Kumar Chattopadhyay, from the Department of Statistics. He is statistician, and a high figure of astrostatistics around the world. He will give a talk on June 21 (14:00) at the Laboratoire Jean Kunzmann aimed at statisticians : "Dimension reduction and identification of data clusters under Gaussian and non Gaussian set up. "
  • Tanuka Chattopadhyay, from the Department of Applied Mathematics. She is a leader in astrostatistics, and devotes her efforts to the use of statistical methods in astronomy. She will give a talk at IPAG on June 28 (11:00) "Fragmentation of Molecular clouds and Initial Mass Function (IMF)".

I think it is a great opportunity for everyone and especially young people. If you are interested by the practical session on Friday 29th, you should take your laptop and install beforehand C++ and the R package (available for all platforms at http://www.r-project.org/ and present in most Linux distributions).

No inscription required.

Note that if there is enough demand, another session could be organized during the second week of July (9-13). Please inform Didier Fraix-Burnet.
