The primary goal of this 3‐day workshop is to educate the LHC community about the scientific utility of likelihoods. We shall do so by describing and discussing several real‐world examples of the use of likelihoods, including a one‐day in‐depth examination of likelihoods in the Higgs boson studies by ATLAS and CMS.
The workshop will start with two pedagogical lectures that introduce likelihood concepts and terminology. These lectures are followed, in the afternoon of Day 1, by a moderated discussion that focuses on the concepts and issues raised in the lectures. Day 1 ends with several presentations that illustrate the use of likelihoods in Higgs and Beyond the Standard Model (BSM) research. The goal here is to get feedback from researchers who have used Higgs and BSM results in their work.See: Likelihood for the LHC Searches
