Both Fundamentals of Probability (MCS.T212) and Mathematical Statistics (MCS.T223) are necessary. Based on probability theory and mathematical statistics, mathematical structure of data analysis is introduced. Student should not measure this subject by practicability. True data analysis, which is based on mathematics, enables us to have wide viewpoints and deep insight. Nowadays, data analysis requires not only classical tools but also algebraic geometry, manifold theory, and stochastic process theory on functional space.
Using probability theory and mathematical statistics, let's study and understand basic points of data analysis with applications to practical problems. You should understand that algebraic geometry, manifold theory, and stochastic process theory on functional space are necessary in modern data analysis.

The lecturer worked in the company for eight years, but realized that what was said to be practical in the world was useless at all. The truly useful things were modern mathematics, such as algebraic geometry, algebraic analysis, and hyperfunction theory, and the mathematical mind which cannot be acquired without giving proofs of mathematics one by one. |
probability theory and mathematical statistics are necessary, mathematics is the most important.
✔ Specialist skills | Intercultural skills | Communication skills | ✔ Critical thinking skills | ✔ Practical and/or problem-solving skills |
✔ To do mathematical work, you need to learn mathematics. Easy introduction of machine learning and statistics is useless in the real world. |
Both Fundamentals of Probability (MCS.T212) and Mathematical Statistics (MCS.T223) are necessary for attending this lecture. In data analysis, their mathematical foundations and applications to practical problems are explained.
