MAT-01566 Mathematics 5, 5 cr
||Final Exam and weekly exercises|
In this course, the students learn the basic concepts of probabilities, random variables and random vectors. The students learn to compute discrete and continuous probabilities and expectation values such as variances and correlations. The students also learn to apply the probability calculus to practical problems. The students learn how to justify their claims using mathematical methods and to present their solutions orally as well as in written form.
