Mathematical Statistics (B,K,N,BME)
Official Course Description
Replaces by FMS086.
The course is intended to give the student the basics in mathematical modelling of random variation and an understanding of the principles behind statistical analysis. It shall also give the students a toolbox containing the most commonly used models and methods, as well as the ability to use these in practical situations. The emphasis lies on models and methods for analysis of experimental data and measurement errors.
The course fills two purposes, providing a fundamental knowledge of mathematical statistics, as well as giving a foundation for further studies.
The fundamental knowledge is essential to those who, in their professional lives, will not necessarily be involved in statistical analyses on a daily basis, but who, on occasion, will be expected to perform basic statistical tests and present the results to their colleagues. They will also be expected to be able to read and assess the analyses of others.
The course shall also give a basis for further studies, particularly in design of experiments and methods for multidimensional data (Chemometrics).
