Analysing small data sets - a mini overview (Seminar 12 July)

Analysing data sets with a small number of observations can be a challenge! This seminar will touch on some of the problems that arise in these analyses and outline a number of analysis methods, together with their limitations. The general types of method we will talk about are parametric (e.g. t test, ANOVA), non-parametric (e.g. Mann-Whitney, Kruskal-Wallis) and randomisation methods.

Quantitative X-ray Diffraction Analysis: Short Course on Rietveld Refinement - July 9-12

For Science & Engineering Postgraduates and Staff: Monday 9 to Thursday 12 July 2018
 
Quantitative X-ray diffraction analysis is usually defined as determination of quantities of different phases in a multi-phase sample; it also includes extraction of structure information of a crystalline material from its XRD pattern. In this field Rietveld refinement currently becomes a dominant method because it is standard-less (standard sample is not necessary), flexible, and having reasonable accuracy.
