Contents

The practical course is based on the statistics software ''R''. First, the functionalities of ''R'' are introduced. Subsequently, the theory is briefly introduced to the topics listed below. The methods introduced are investigated with ''R'' on the basis of simulations and applied to data sets.

Topics (only a selection is covered)

• Basics in dealing with R
• Random variables and their simulation
• descriptive statistics and graphics
• Point and interval estimation
• Statistical hypothesis tests
• Analysis of multivariate data
• Linear Regression
• Covariance and variance analysis
• Generalized linear models

Qualification Goals

The students shall

• learn how to use the statistics software R,
• be able to investigate statistical methods by means of suitable simulations,
• be able to apply appropriate statistical methods to given data sets and problems,
