Basic linear algebra and calculus.
Objectives
The course of Probability and Statistics for the Faculty of Engineering has as its main goal to lead the student to acquire, starting from elementary properties of the concepts of probability, the necessary expertise in the statistical calculation.
Program
• Probability spaces. Discrete and continuous random variables.
• Expected value and variance.
• Independence, conditional expected value.
• Statistical inference: statistical models, extimation, test, linear and log-linear models.
Book
