Teaching methods

Project work


The explanation of basic terms and methods needed when analysing experimental data and consequential subjects (mathematical statistics, econometrics, time series, design of experiments) and some other special methods of quality control. The main chapters are: random variable, random vector and function of random variable. The explanation is aimed at the description and qualities of basic terms and the possibilities of their application.
