Mathematical Statistics

Mathematical statistics is a subject that contains both advanced mathematics in the form of probability theory, and statistics which gives the opportunity to interpret scientific investigations, experiment and data. The Students should describe and analyze data by the help of mathematics suitable for various kind of random phenomena. These can be complicated, as e.g. the probability of surviving after a cancer operation and the variation of extreme wave height across the oceans, or simpler, as for e.g. results when rolling a dice. Courses are given in probability theory, inference theory, statistical models and methods, design of experiments, stationary processes, time series analysis, survival analysis, safety analysis, regression, financial mathematics (valuation of derivative assets and financial statistics) and Monte Carlo-based statistical methods (=computational methods using numbers to solve problems there analytic methods either are lacking or are too complicated). The subject can be studied up to 120 credits and be part of the main subject mathematics in a Bachelor's exam, and as a Master's exam in the main subject mathematical statistics.
