Tools from the Couch: Bayesian Analysis: Using MCMC in practice.

Event Details

Tools from the Couch

Location: Zoom

Date: July 16, 2020

Time: 1:00pm - 2:30pm

Tools from the Couch is an opportunity for our Astroparticle Physics+ Community to share the diverse expertise that exists in the department and broader community on different computational (or otherwise!) tools that we use for our research. This is an extension of but includes the Data Science Groups from past terms. Weekly sessions on different topics are held every Thursday at 1:00pm EDT on zoom.

Lead: Aaron Vincent
Overview: We will continue our discussion of Bayesian inference methods with a few hands-on exercises. I’ll work through a basic emcee tutorial, demonstrate some of the functionality of MultiNest, and finish with some free time to play around with MCMC samplers.

Registration available here, and must be done to receive the Zoom link.
