Samples and Statistics: Distinguishing Populations of Hot Jupiters in a Growing Dataset

Samples and Statistics: Distinguishing Populations of Hot Jupiters in a Growing Dataset

Techniques in astrostatistics help astronomers characterize large amounts of data. The authors of today’s astrobite use data-driven astrostatistics to distinguish between populations of hot Jupiters in a sample. It’s a technique that can definitely be put to good use over the next few decades, as oodles of observations pour in from the new telescopes of the 21st century.
