Dynamic and Multivariate Stochastic Models
FSI-9DVMAcad. year: 2016/2017Summer semesterNot applicable.. year of study2 credits
The course is intended for the students of doctoral degree programme and it is concerned with the modern stochastic methods (stochastic processes and their processing, multidimensional probability distributions, multidimensional linear and nonlinear regression analysis, correlation analysis, principal components method, factor analysis, discrimination analysis, cluster analysis) for modeling of dynamic and multidimensional problems gained at realization and evaluation of experiments in terms of students research work.
Learning outcomes of the course unit
Students acquire higher knowledge concerning modern stochastic methods, which enable them to model dynamic and multidimensional technical phenomena and processes by means calculations on PC.
Rudiments of the theory probability and mathematical statistics.
