Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to operate elementary probability calculus, to generate discrete and continuous variables, to estimate unknown parameters from random samples and to test hypotheses. Students learn to solve exercises with self-written program codes.

Subject of course

Elementary introduction to probability; Bayes' theorem; counting experimants, discrete random variables; measurement experiments and continuous random variables; random samples and sample statistics; and their properties; moment estimators, maximum likelihood estimators, bayes estimators; confidence intervals and credible intervals; testing of hypotheses; linear models and regression.

Teaching methods

Derivation of algorithms, graphical representations, solving examples

Mode of examination

Written

The course starts October 14th 2022, and ends December 2022.

Briefing takes place october 4th, 2:00 pm on zoom.
