This is an introductory course in statistics and statistical methods for data analysis.
We will introduce descriptive statistics, ANOVA, GLMs, correlations, spectra, wavelets, etc.
This will allow us to perform typical analysis that underlie most modern data science questions.
|Session||Second Sub Session||Credit Points||15 credits (7.5 ECTS credits)|
In this course we will introduce the bases of statistics and statistical modelling.
We will discuss the basics of descriptive statistics, means, variances, quantiles, distributions, etc, following standard textbooks in this area.
Furthermore, this course will introduce ANOVA and GLMs.
It will also introduce standard methods of time series analysis such as correlations, spectra wavelets etc. Some more advanced methods on time series modelling and forecasting will also be discussed.
We will also use (at a very ad hoc level) various approaches of machine learning such as clustering, distribution learning, outlier detection etc.
Information on contact teaching time is available from the course guide.
