Contents

Continuation of the contents of an intermediate module, exemplary treatment of current results under inclusion of newer research literature.

  • probability theory
  • Stochastic processes
  • statistics


Qualification Goals

Unchecked automatic translation:
The students shall

  • be introduced to current research results,
  • learn how to deal with research literature,
  • Gain insight into the development of new mathematical results,
  • deepen their mathematical knowledge in a specific field,
  • Acquire the competence to independently work with current scientific articles from national and international journals,
  • practice mathematical working methods (development of mathematical intuition and its formal justification, training of the ability to abstract, proof techniques),
  • improve their oral communication skills in the exercises by practicing free speech in front of an audience and during discussion.

Prerequisites

None. The competences taught in the following modules are recommended: either Foundations of Mathematics and Linear Algebra I and Linear Algebra II or Basic Linear Algebra, either Analysis I and Analysis II or Basic Real Analysis.
