Dealing with systematics and setting limits
St. John’s College, Oxford, UK
The analysis of data in particle physics often involves systematic uncertainties, and the results entail the setting of limits on inferred parameters. This paper illustrates the former with a simple example, building on the introduction to the Bayesian approach given in Sivia , and offers a novel suggestion for the latter.
