Basic notions of the probability and statistics will be introduced and examples of applications will be given. It concerns especially of the notion of probability, random variable and of its distribution, independence, random sample and its descriptive characteristics, construction of estimators, testing of hypotheses and random number generation. Emphasis will be especially on the practical use of above mentioned methods using freely available statistical software.

Last update: doc. Mgr. Petr Kaplický, Ph.D. (28.05.2019)

The students will learn basics of the probability theory and mathematical statistics. The will be able to understand the core of stochastic procedures presented in other courses.
