Martin Kilbinger (CEA) will speak with us about weak-lensing peak counts, and a new statistical method that he has been using lately called Approximate Bayesian Computation (ABC). This is a likelihood-free parameter inference technique which is gaining popularity in cosmology, so it might be interesting for a wider audience than just weak lensing.
