Statistics for Searches at the LHC    [PDF]

Glen Cowan
These lectures describe several topics in statistical data analysis as used in High Energy Physics. They focus on areas most relevant to analyses at the LHC that search for new physical phenomena, including statistical tests for discovery and exclusion limits. Particular attention is payed to the treatment of systematic uncertainties through nuisance parameters.
