Eligibility:

In order to be eligible for a first cycle course the applicant needs to fulfil the general and specific entry requirements of the programme(s) that has the course included in the study programme.

Course specific prerequisites

Basic courses in Linear algebra and Calculus.

Aim

The course intends to give the students knowledge in basic probability theory and statistical inference. This knowledge is essential for the understanding of the statistical methods and tests used in technical and natural sciences.

Learning outcomes (after completion of the course the student should be able to)

- understand how different situations are influenced by chance, - calculate risks, - draw conclusions from surveys, - calculate the reliability in technical systems.

Content

Descriptive statistics, elementary probability, dependent and independent events, discrete and continuous distributions, expectation, variance, the central limit theorem (without proof), interval estimation. Markov chains with discrete and continuous time.

Organisation

The course consists of 21 lectures and 7 exercises.

Literature

Ulla Dahlbom, Mathematical statistics (In swedish), Matematiklitteratur, ISBN 91-974428-0-1. Andreas Andersson, Introduction to Markov chains with discrete and contiuous time (In swedish), Matematiklitteratur, ISBN 91-974785-2-0. Håkan Blomqvist, Formulary in matematical statistics, (In swedish), Matematiklitteratur.

Examination

To pass the course the student must pass both a thesis and some computer laboratory works. The maximum point on the thesis is always 50. To pass the thesis one needs to get at least 20p. To get class 3 the student needs at least 20 p, for class 4 30p and for class 5 40p.
