Statistical Methods in Cosmology and Astrophysics
Lecturer:
Summary: Statistical methods play a vital role in modern cosmology and astrophysics studies. This course will give an overview of the statistical principles and tools that are used in these fields. Topics covered will include basic probability theory, Bayesian inference, hypothesis testing, sampling and estimators.

Courses Spring Semester 2016
Theoretical Astrophysics and Cosmology
Lecturers: Prof. Dr. Lucio Mayer and Prof. Dr. Alexandre Refregier
Summary: This is the second of a two course series which starts with "General Relativity" and continues in the spring with "Theoretical Astrophysics and Cosmology", where the focus will be on applying general relativity to cosmology as well as developing the modern theory of structure formation in a cold dark matter Universe.

Advanced Statistical Methods in Cosmology and Astrophysics
Lecturer: Dr. Adam Amara
Summary: Statistical methods are increasingly important in modern science. In this course we will build an understanding of statistical methods beyond Bayesian inference. These include information content of experiments through relative entropy and ABC methods for difficult problem when the likelihood cannot be calculated. We will also cover topics which are now commonly used in cosmology.

Gravitational Lenses of the Dark Universe
Lecturer:
Summary: Gravitational lensing, first used to test prediction from G. R. that light bends in the presence of a gravitational field, has become an important tool in astronomy. Gravitational lensing effects have been measured from extra-solar planets to galaxy clusters. This represents a dynamic range of 20 orders of magnitude in mass and makes the technique a powerful tool in various astronomical fields.
