These notions are applied to point estimation, interval estimation and hypothesis testing. Theoretical evaluations are completed with many examples and the students are trained to implement the methods of the course using statistical software. The course contents is an entry to more advanced courses within Probability Theory and Statistics.
The course consists of two elements, theory and computer exercises.
Instruction is given in the form of lectures, and computer exercises.
