MSCS Colloquium:The German Tank Problem and Statistical Simulation
Bob Eisinger, Visiting Assistant Professor of Statistics, St Olaf College
During WWII the Allies were interested in determining the production of German       armaments, such as tanks, trucks and rockets. Using clever statistical and mathematical tools, scientists were able to estimate the production of these armaments more accurately than data obtained from industry, interrogation, or spying. We’ll use the German Tank Problem to explore estimation, statistical simulation and the dangers of using serial numbers.
