11th July 2005 — Hypothesis testing and p-values

Zoubin and Katherine will present:

“Hypothesis testing and p-values”, Chapter 10 of “All of Statistics” by Larry Wasserman.

For a critique of frequentist hypothesis testing you can also look at Chapter 37 of David MacKay’s textbook. David’s also written a sermon on Chi-squared for “hypothesis testing” (postscript | pdf), which offers another 4 pages of criticism of frequentism.
