Mathematical and Statistical Modelling - CIVE97044
- To give a solid grounding in the concepts of probability and statistical modelling.
- Emphasis is placed on asking the right questions, and testing and questioning assumptions, and on using robust statistical tools that can cope with departures from the assumptions. Graphical analyses are used whenever possible, and "exploratory" data analysis is encouraged. Exercises are introduced regularly throughout the lectures to immediately reinforce the material being discussed; these are usually of a practical nature.
