neat little book that's a pleasure to read and a blessing to have handy for reference.

Recommend to librarian. This practical handbook presents the most relevant statistical and probabilistic machinery for use in observational astronomy. Classical parametric and non-parametric methods are covered, but there is a strong emphasis on Bayesian solutions and the importance of probability in experimental inference. Chapters cover basic probability, correlation analysis, hypothesis testing, Bayesian modelling, time series analysis, luminosity functions, and clustering. neat little book that's a pleasure to read and a blessing to have handy for reference.

Wall and Jenkins have produced an excellent introduction to astrostatistics, the discipline that is foremost interested in the statistical analysis of astronomical data. The book is clearly written for astronomers and for students in astronomy. However, it is also of good value to statisticians who already understand the statistics, but not necessarily the appropriate application of various statistical analyses to astronomical and cosmological data. I found the book most useful to myself in that respect.

Practical Statistics for Astronomers. J. V. Wall, C. R. Jenkins. Published online: 05 June 2012. Print publication: 26 April 2012. The handbook begins with x-ray optics, basic detector physics and CCDs, before focussing on data analysis. It introduces the reduction and calibration of x-ray data, scientific analysis, archives, statistical issues and the particular problems of highly extended sources. The book describes the main hardware used in x-ray astronomy, emphasizing the implications for data analysis.

Practical Statistics for Astronomers book.

Astronomy, like any experimental subject, needs statistical methods to interpret data reliably.
