    Scales and distributions

    • Scales (metric, ordinal, nominal)
    • Distributions (general, particular: normal, binomial, Poisson)
    • Characterizing distributions
    • censored data, categories + cutoffs

    Overview models and statistics

    • parametric/non-parametric statistics
    • types of models (regression, classification, cluster analysis, coordinate transformation)
    • bias and variance

    Verification and Validation

    • validation vs. verification
    • figures of merit
    • stability, robustness, ruggedness
    • outliers

    Design of Experiments

    • Introduction to terminology + methodology
    • Sample size planning
    • Case-control design

    Hypothesis testing

    • z- and t-test, paired t-test
    • Formulating hypotheses
    • Bayes theorem
    • test for other distributions

    ANOVA and linear model

    • linear models
    • ANOVA as acomparison of group means
    • design matrix

    Hypothesis testing: the small-print

    • why so complicated?
    • The right answer to the wrong question
    • significance
    • significant ? important
    • pitfalls: HARK
    • multiple comparisons
    • FDR
    • pitfalls: p-hacking

    Location: JSMC building, Neugasse 23, seminar room 101
