Objective (expected results of study and acquired competences)

At first the student should realize the uncertainty when describing natural, technical or socio-economical phenomena and methods should be offered to him for modelling (applied probability). The discussed models and methods for describing existing or observed data, for estimating parameters and for testing hypothesis on models and parameters should help the student to handle and analyse data, practical questions and problems in a senseful statistical way for his own (also using appropriate statistical software) and to judge statistcal results in a correct way.
