Title: Bayes versus Frequentism:The Return of an Old Controvery

Abstract

These two very different approaches to analysing data are described and contrasted, using examples both from every-day life and from the world of Physics. Cases where the resulting answers differ significantly will be discussed. The discussion of the ideas involved will be such that they should be accessible to those with little previous knowledge of statistics.
