Stochastic Methods of Modelling

Course aims

The aim of the course is to provide theoretical and practical foundation for understanding the importance of basic probability concepts and teach the student statistical thinking as a way of understanding the processes and events around us, to acquaint him with the basic methods of gathering and analyzing statistical data, and to show how to use these general procedures in other subjects of study and in practice.

Graduates of this course should be able to:
• understand and use the basic terms from the combinatorics and probability theory;
• formulate questions that can be answered by the data and understand principles of collecting, processing and presentation of the data;
• select and use appropriate statistical methods for data analysis;
• propose and evaluate conclusions (inference) and make predictions using the data.


The graduate of this course should be able:
• understand and use basic notions in combinatorics and probability theory
• formulate questions, which can be answered based on the given data, for this purpose learn the principles of collecting, processing data and presentation of relevant values and results
• choose and use suitable statistical methods for data analysis
• suggest and evaluate conclusions (inference) and predictions obtained from data
