# Course Description REA1081 - Statistics (2005/2006)

 Level Undergraduate ECTS Credits 5 Duration Spring Language Norwegian Prerequisite(s) Aim The students must be able to - Compute means and standard deviations, expectation values, variances and co-variances - Compute probabilities and use discrete and continuous probability distributions - Compute point and interval estimates for the parameters in the Normal distribution - Use a test of hypotheses - Compute correlations, find a straight line by using the method of least squares and determine the standard deviation of the straight line constants. - Use statistical methods to solve practical engineering problems Content Descriptive statistics: - Measures of central tendency, variation and linear regression. Probability: - Stochastic models, elements of probability, conditional probability, independence Probability distributions: - Expected value, variance and standard deviation. - Binomial and Poisson distribution. Uniform, normal, Students t- and exponential distribution. Statistical inference: - Point and interval estimators. Tests of hypotheses.  The parameters in normal distribution (one and two variables), binomial and Poisson distribution. Linear model. Simulation: - Computer applications (Binomial, normal and linear model).
