Subject description

Mathematical statistics deals with mathematical methods for analyzing random phenomena. The subject can roughly be divided in two parts: probability theory and statistical inference. The first part concerns modeling and computation of probabilities while the latter concerns methods for drawing conclusions about models from data. The subject contains theoretical parts as well as more applied parts adjusted to different areas of application.
