Six key trends in contemporary statistics that really could revolutionise astronomical data analysis …

I’ve just come across this very interesting astrostatistics site, and I thought I’d reblog a piece from it. In fact I did make a very crude attempt back in the 90s to do something very like the SPDE analysis described here, but it came to nothing and I dropped the idea. Now it seems that there’s been a great deal of more recent activity in this area which I knew nothing about so it might be worth reviving interest in it.

Now. Where did I put those notes?

    I’ve lately been struggling to understand what I think is a convergent evolution between some ideas in cosmological statistics and INLA. Not the SPDE connection between GPs and GMRFs, but rather the strategy for fast approximate integration over nuisance parameters: https://astrostatistics.wordpress.com/2015/07/24/on-path-integral-evidence-marginal-likelihood-computations/?preview_id=2145
