DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Johannes Heinrich Weber (Technische Universität Mü
nchen)\, Alexei Bazavov (Michigan State University)\, Viljami Leino (TUM)\
, Nora Brambilla (Physik Department\, TU Munich)\nThe scope of this school
is to offer graduate students and postdocs complementary training at the
frontier of EFTs and lattice field theory focusing on relevant physical
problems.\n\nBesides introductory lectures to well-established and general
methods in EFT and Lattice we will host talks on innovative ideas and ap
proaches at the fields’ interface.\n\nSpecial emphasis is put on aspect
s of nuclear physics relevant for neutrino and dark matter physics\, jet
physics\, parton distribution functions and nuclear structure\, vacuum an
d in-medium heavy quark physics\, and quantum information science.\n\nThi
s training at the interface of these two approaches will provide young sc
ientists with the tools for tackling the most interesting and still open
problems in particle and nuclear physics.\n\nExercises\, solutions as well
as discussions will be key features of the school. Lecturers are suppose
d to assign few interesting and pedagogical exercises.\n\nWe will host a
poster session during the second week of the school in Wonder.me (link bel
ow\, password will be provided at later date). The posters can be presente
d before or after the lectures to accommodate students from different time
zones. The poster session will be added to the indico schedule after the
registration closes. To register for the poster\, please register at the i
ndico. If you want to just register for the school\, use the Bad Honned re
gistration link.\n\nCourse webpage at Bad Honnef Physics School webpage\n\

SUMMARY:Practical Inference for Researchers in the Physical Sciences

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Johannes Buchner (PUC)\, Francesca Capel (ODSL)\nOve
rview\n\nThe ORIGINS Data Science Laboratory is organising the next set
of block courses from September 6th - 15th 2021 on the theme of Practical
Inference for Researchers in the Physical Sciences.\n\nThe idea with the
block course format is to have two weeks of more intense lectures and tuto
rial sessions. With this course\, we want to focus on bridging the gap bet
ween learning about Bayesian probability theory and the actual applicatio
n of these methods to realistic research problems. In this way\, the cour
se will be a mix of standard lectures as well as interactive coding exerci
ses.\n\nThe courses and tutorials are organised by Johannes Buchner and F
rancesca Capel. All sessions will be held online via Zoom. Please registe
r for the course using the link below and feel free to get in touch if yo
u have any questions.\n\nCourse content\n\nThis session consists of two o
ne-week courses.\n\nBlock I: Monte Carlo inference methods\n\nSeptember 6t
h - 8th 2021\n\nIn this block\, we will refresh some of the basic concepts
of Bayesian inference and introduce the algorithms and tools that can be
used to implement analyses. The main lecturer is Johannes Buchner.\n\nTopi
cs covered:\n\n\n Refresher on Bayesian inference for parameter estimation
and model comparison\n Parameter uncertainties\, degeneracies and knowled
ge updates\n Modern Monte Carlo algorithms for Bayesian inference in pract
ice:\n \n Importance Sampling\n Markov Chain Monte Carlo\n Nested Sampl
ing\n \n \n Modern probabilistic computation packages\n\n\nBlock II: Baye
sian workflow\n\nSeptember 13th - 15th 2021\n\nIn this block\, we will dem
onstrate how to apply the above methods to realistic problems and deal wit
h common issues that may arise. The main lecturer is Francesca Capel.\n\nT
opics covered:\n\n\n Going from a science question to a statistical model\
n Defining sensible priors for your problem\n Diagnosing problems in model
s and computation\n Verification of a statistical model through simulation
s\n Experiment design\n Model comparison\n\n\nExpected prerequisites\n\nWe
expect students following the course to have a basic understanding of Bay
esian probability theory and a good grasp of python and Jupyter notebooks
\, which will be used for the tutorial sessions.\n\nTimetable\n\nThe cours
e will run from Monday to Wednesday each week with the following schedule
:\n\nLecture 10:00 - 12:00 \n\nTutorial 14:00 - 16:00\n\nThe lectures wil
l include short breaks and the tutorials will be interactive coding sessio
ns.\n\nRegistration\n\nTo register\, click on the button below. If you wan
t to register for ECTS credits through the TUM\, you must also register i
n TUMonline (simply search for each block course by its name). \n\nForms
of credit\n\nIt is possible to get a certification or ECTS points for part
icipation in the block courses:\n\nTo get a Certificate of Participation
(for either one of the two blocks or both)\, you will need to turn in so
lutions to the exercises that will be assigned during the course tutorial
session and get a passing grade. The certification will be done on a co
urse-by-course basis\, and will state that you have successfully completed
the block course in the respective topic. \n\nTo get the 3 (LMU) or 5
(TUM) ECTS points\, you will need to turn in solutions to all exercises (t
utorial and homework) for both block courses. The grade for the course wi
ll be based on these exercises\, and there will not be an additional exam
. Due to the difference in credits\, the amount of work necessary for LMU
and TUM students will be adjusted accordingly.\n\nAll exercises will be ma
de available before the courses and the deadline to hand in the solutions
is September 30\, 2021. Participants who do not want a certificate or ECT
S credits are not required to turn in solutions\, but are allowed to do s
o.\n\nReceiving credit \n\nTUM: Students may obtain 5 ECTS by registerin
g on TUMOnline (see Registration above).\n\nLMU: Students in Physics may o
btain 3 ECTS as an elective subject from\nthis course. Please follow the d
irections at\nhttps://www.physik.lmu.de/en/studies/examination-office/inde
x.html#st_accordion__master_6\nfor a recognition of the credits.\n\nZoom i
nformation\n\nThe Zoom meeting links will be shared here prior to the star
t of the course.\n\nThe course itself\, as well as one tutorial will be re
corded\, the other tutorials not. If you have any objections to this\, ple
ase contact us directly. We will make the recordings of the lectures avail
able online until the deadline for turning in reports (see below). After t
hat date\, the recordings will be removed and no longer be accessible.\nht
