2021-11-10 ~ 2021-11-24 Introduction to Statistical Data Analysis with Python ( free, only for UNIBE postdocs and phd students)

Three days on how to perform statistics with Python.


Statistical data analysis with Python

Statistical inference is the process of deducing properties of an underlying probability distribution (model/theory) by analysis of data. What does it mean when we quantify new measurements, claim findings like discoveries or exclusions of new phenomena? Extracting knowledge from data is about probability and uncertainties.

PD Dr. Sigve Haug

Sigve studied physics in Germany, Spain and Norway. He has been involved in neutrino physics experiments and high energy frontier experiments, often with main focus on the computing challenges related to the large and distributed data from these experiments. Today he is working for the Albert Einstein Center for fundamental Physics and the Mathematical Institute of the University of Bern where is leading the Science IT Support unit (
