This wealth of data gives rise to statistical challenges not previously encountered in astronomy. This book is the result of a workshop held at Pennsylvania State University in August that brought together leading astronomers and statisticians to consider statistical challenges encountered in modern astronomical research.

rience in astronomy, and his colleagues have run con-ferences and authored many useful monographs (e.g., [16], [17], [22] and [27]). We at Penn State have run a series of Statistical Challenges in Modern Astronomy meetings with both communities in attendance (e.g., [3] and [10]).

Alanna Connors has organized brief. The Statistical Challenges in Modern Astronomy V conference will bring astronomers and statisticians together to discuss methodological issues of common interest.

Astronomical Soc./Pacific pages $ Hardcover Astronomical Society of the Pacific conference series; v QB Digital sky surveys, data from orbiting telescopes, and advances in computation have increased the quantity and quality of astronomical data by several orders of magnitude in recent years.

Making sense of this wealth of data requires sophisticated statistical and data analytic techniques. Fortunately, statistical methodologies have similarly made great strides in recent years. Modern astronomical research faces a vast range of statistical issues which have spawned a revival in methodological activity among astronomers.

The Statistical Challenges in Modern Astronomy II conference, held in June at the Pennsylvania State University five years after the first conference, brought astronomers and statisticians. Statistical challenges in astronomy.

Book Descriptions: Modern astronomical research faces a vast range of statistical issues which have spawned a revival in methodological activity among astronomers.

The Statistical Challenges in Modern Astronomy II conference brought astronomers and statisticians together to discuss methodological issues of common interest.

After five groundbreaking conferences at Penn State, Statistical Challenges in Modern Astronomy VI was held at Carnegie Mellon University, June 6 to 10, This meeting continued the interdisciplinary tradition of its predecessors, bringing together researchers in astronomy, cosmology, statistics, and machine learning to facilitate progress on the significant data.

The second annual Summer School in Statistics for Astronomers and Physicists was held at Penn State. This is a 5-day course in fundamental statistical inference designed to provide physical scientists, and graduate students, with a strong conceptual foundation in modern statistics and to develop a repertoire of well-established techniques applicable to observational astronomy and.

Book on statistics in astronomy wins PROSE award for cosmology and astronomy Janu UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- Penn State scientists Eric Feigelson and G. Jogesh Babu have been awarded the American Publishers Award for Professional and Scholarly Excellence (PROSE) in cosmology and astronomy for their book Modern Statistical Methods.

Both astronomical and statistical communities now recognize the wide array of fascinating methodological issues faced by the modern astronomer. Ranging from terabyte wide-field surveys to small-N samples, from cosmology to the search for Earth-like planets, astronomical research can no longer be pursued with a small toolbox of familiar.
