Course detail

Statistical Analysis and Experiment

FSI-9SAEAcad. year: 2020/2021

The course is intended for the students of doctoral degree programme and it is concerned with the modern methods of statistical analysis (random sample and its realization, distribution fitting and parameter estimation, statistical hypotheses testing, regression analysis) for statistical data processing gained at realization and evaluation of experiments in terms of students research work.

Learning outcomes of the course unit

Students acquire higher knowledge concerning methods of mathematical statistics, which enable them to apply stochastic models of technical phenomena and processes by means calculations on PC.
