Basic concepts of probability theory
- probability space, events, discrete probability distributions, combinatorics
- conditional probability, independence, random variables, expected value, conditional expected value, variance, covariance, correlation, moments
- general probability spaces and random variables
- laws of large numbers and central limit theorem, basic concepts of statistics
- descriptive statistics and data types
- elements of inferential statistics: estimation, confidence sets, hypothesis testing
The students shall
- learn the basics of stochastics,
- practice to model random quantities using theoretical probabilistic models,
- get to know the basic principles of descriptive and conclusive statistics,
- 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.
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.
