Aim of the lectures

The aim of the course is to present how the experiments in elementary particle physics are designed and how the data taken in these experiments are analyzed in order to get the physics results. A selection of old and recent experiments are considered and discussed. Advanced statistics methods used in present experiments are also presented. At the end, the students should be able to understand and discuss research papers describing measurements done in elementary particle physics experiments.
