- Offered in
- Wintersemester 2019/20
- Languages of instruction
Introduction into extreme value statistics
- Extreme value distributions
- block maxima (BM) method
- peaks over threshold (POT) method
- regional frequency analysis
- applications to design problems and risk analysis
Introduction to geostatstics
- basic concepts
- variography of spatial data,
- statistical interpolation and prediction (kriging).
- advanced kriging methods
- geostatistical simulation
- Previous knowledge expected
Advanced lecture in applied statistics. A sound basis in statistical methods (introduction to statistics) and computer basics required! For participants not familiar with geostatistics basics at all we recommend attending course "851311 Environmental Statistics" before.
- Objective (expected results of study and acquired competences)
Students gain basic knowledge of methods of extreme value statistics and geostatistics, their basic assumptions, and to the use of statistical software (R) to analyse data.
