This free public lecture, titled “Statistics and the Fair Administration of Justice,” will be preceded by a public reception at 3:30 p.m. in the auditorium lobby and is sponsored by the Department of Statistics and the Penn State Eberly College of Science.

The lecture will focus on a Bayesian statistical framework for assessing the probative value of forensic evidence, with two examples — one using the chemical composition of glass fragments and the other using information about the surface topography of bullet lands (marks on a bullet that allow it to be matched to the gun from which it was fired) — to illustrate its application.
