Since 2002 Perimeter Institute has been recording seminars, conference talks, public outreach events such as talks from top scientists using video cameras installed in our lecture theatres. Perimeter now has 7 formal presentation spaces for its many scientific conferences, seminars, workshops and educational outreach activities, all with advanced audio-visual technical capabilities.
Recordings of events in these areas are all available and On-Demand from this Video Library and on Perimeter Institute Recorded Seminar Archive (PIRSA). PIRSA is a permanent, free, searchable, and citable archive of recorded seminars from relevant bodies in physics. This resource has been partially modelled after Cornell University's arXiv.org.
Accessibly by anyone with internet, Perimeter aims to share the power and wonder of science with this free library.
We shall follow the
growth of probability theory and applications from the 1650s onwards, in
parallel with the development of statistical inference. Bayesian,
Neyman-Pearson hypothesis testing and Fisherian likelihood methods will all be
covered, with an emphasis on relating theory to a wide range of
applications. Practical sessions will use SciPy and feature
closed-form solutions, iterative and Monte Carlo simulation methods.

The crucial role that the Higgs boson plays in the
standard model for strong weak and electromagnetic interactions is reviewed.
Recently a resonance with properties consistent with
those expected for the Higgs boson has been discovered at the large hadron collider (LHC).

The LHC detectors are allowing experimentalists to look
"inside" of jets and study the properties of these. Jet substructure
gives us the tools to study boosted resonances that decay into jets. In
this talk, I will discuss an extension of substructure techniques to beyond the
Standard Model signals where reconstructing resonances may not be optimal, but
these techniques still allow us to pick out these signals from a busy QCD
environment.
