In the interpretation of transmission spectra of exoplanets, robust statistics are necessary to compare the ability of a suite of models to describe a set of transit depths. The "goodness" of a model informs about the physical characteristics of the star-planet system: radius ratio, object densities, whether the planetary atmosphere ...
