Title: p-values: what they are, what they are not, and why they often work
Abstract: The definition of p-values will be reviewed and discussed. In particular, the use of p-values in model selection will be addressed from a logical as well as practical perspective.
Some relevant papers:
M. Schervish, ‘p-values: what they are and what they are not’, The American Statistician, Volume 50, 1996
F. Beaujean et al., ‘p-values for model evaluation’, Phys. Rev. D 83, 012004
A. Caldwell, ‘Aspects of frequentism’, Ann. der Physik, Vol. 531, issue 3 (2019)
As usual, the format will be a short presentation followed by plenty of discussion.
Please let all interested know about the Journal Club (get them to send their Email address). We are looking forward to lively discussions.
