*Open Statistical Issues in Particle Physics* by **Louis Lyons**

My recollection of meeting Prof. L. Lyons was that he is very kind and listening. I was delighted to see his introductory article about particle physics and its statistical challenges from an [arxiv:stat] email subscription. Continue reading ‘[ArXiv] Particle Physics’ »

I was reading [1]. I must say that I do not know Bayesian methods to cope with model misspecification, tests with an unknown true model, or tests for non-nested hypotheses except Bayes factor (concerns a lot how to choose priors). Nonetheless, the zeal among economists to test non-nested models might assist astronomers to move forward beyond testing nested hypotheses with F statistic.
