Recent progress on statistical methods for LHC physics
If you have a question about this talk, please contact Kazuki Sakurai.
Making a discovery at the Large Hadron Collider requires one to reject the hypothesis that the observed data are consistent with known background processes, and in quantifying the significance of a potential signal one must take into account all known uncertainties. The talk will describe recent progress with profile likelihood methods, which provide a straightforward framework for carrying out this task. These will be contrasted with methods widely used at LEP and the Tevatron. The machinery for producing combined results of a search, such as from different decay channels of the Higgs boson, will also be described.
This talk is part of the HEP phenomenology joint Cavendish-DAMTP seminar series.
