Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Based on lectures given by the authors at Stanford and Caltech, this practical approach shows by means of analysis examples how observables are extracted from data, how signal and background are estimated, and how accurate error estimates are obtained exploiting uni- and multivariate analysis techniques. The book includes simple code snippets that run on the popular software suite MATLAB. These snippets make use of publicly available datasets that can be downloaded from the Web.

Primarily aimed at PhD and very advanced undergraduate students, this text can be also used by researchers.

From the contents:

  • Parametric likelihood fits
  • Goodness of fit
  • Resampling techniques
  • Density estimation
  • Data pre-processing
  • Linear transformations and dimensionality reduction
  • Introduction to classifi cation
  • Assessing classifi er performance
  • Linear classification
  • Neural networks
  • Local learning and kernel expansion
  • Decision trees
  • Ensemble learning
  • Reducing multiclass to binary
  • Methods for variable ranking and selection
