The aim of this course is to learn about the basic principles of statistical reasoning, the most important methods for estimating unknown parameters of a system and for taking decisions without complete information, and the use of statistical packages. The methods discussed are for visualising data, for simulating random phenomena, for estimating parameters using Maximum Likelihood and Least Squares estimators, and for testing hypotheses. General Linear Models will be studied using R.
