Through lectures and exercises, this course is designed to teach methods of statistical analysis, estimation and testing that are required for processing and understanding the data obtained by experiments, measurements and simulations.
By the end of this course, students will have acquired fundamental knowledge on statistics and data analysis, which includes methods for estimating probability density distribution, testing of statistical hypotheses, correlation analysis, regression analysis, multivariate analysis and time series analysis.
