Course: Statistics (WS22/23)

Lectures: Mondays and Wednesdays, 12:00 - 12:30, Hörsaal (MI)
Exercises: Fridays, 10:00 - 11:30, Hörsaal II (Physik - Züplicher Str. 77)

In this course we will study selected chapters from the broad field of statistics, starting with some theoretical foundations, such as unbiased estimation and confidence regions. We will then proceed to the general theory of normal distributions and conclude with linear regression and ANOVA. Applications of the theory using R (or some other preferred programming language) will be covered during the exercises.

Understanding of concepts from the course “Introductions to Stochastics“ is a requirement.

Further information and news about the course can be found on ILIAS. Lecture notes and problem sheets will be made available on ILIAS.
