Abstract: 

 The principal statistical estimation problem in meta-analysis is to obtain a reliable confidence interval for the treatment effect. Several possible approaches and settings  are described. In particular a Bayesian model with non-informative priors and  the default data-dependent priors is discussed along with relevant optimization issues.
