Hours & Credits
The course Statistics is a first introduction to the basic concepts of mathematical statistics. After completing this course the student can set up a basic statistical model, estimate parameters in the model, formulate and perform standard hypothesis tests and construct confidence intervals.
Statistics is the field of inferring conclusions about underlying distributions of observed data. In this course we deal with the topics: statistical models, estimation, hypothesis testing and confidence intervals. The theory is illustrated with a number of practical examples.
In this course, we limit ourselves to parametric statistical models, which means that underlying distributions are known up to some unknown parameter(s).
