This crash course is meant as a basic introduction to statistical treatment of experimental data. Attention will be given to description of data, and to basic ideas such as sampling, chance levels and hypothesis testing. Furthermore, the question of how to design an experiment that might prove/disprove your theory will be discussed. The programme is rather ambitious, so students should prepare the assigned chapters before coming to class. In class, the material will be discussed and we will go into some of the exercises.
