4.5 Statistics for Scientists and Engineers: A Program of Short Courses and Tutorials

Statistical Engineering Division, ITL

Statistical concepts and methods are indispensable to research efficiency and planning as well as the characterization of uncertainty in measurements. Hence, the Statistical Engineering Division offers a program of short courses (and shorter tutorials), primarily for the NIST community. The main objective of this effort is to develop an appreciation of the meaning and usefulness of basic statistical concepts and techniques, leading at least to the ability to interpret reliably statistical analyses performed by others. In addition, sufficiently motivated scientists or engineers will be able to learn to perform their own basic statistical analyses. Courses and Tutorials presented during between 1/1/98 and 4/1/99 are:

  • Multivariate Nonparametric Regression
    David Banks
    1/12/98, 1/13/98, 1-3pm

  • Survey of Statistics
    David Banks
    2/3/98, 2/4/98, 1-3pm

  • Experiment Design
    Eric Lagergren
    4/9/98, 4/16/98, 4/23/98, 4/30/98, 9-12am

  • Statistical Uncertainty: Classical and Bayesian Methods
    David Banks, Mark Levenson and Mark Vangel
