Supplier department: Department of Applied Mathematics and Computer Science - Faculty of Economics and Administration **Prerequisites**(in Czech)- (
**BKM_MATE**Mathematics ) || (**BPM_MATE**Mathematics ) **Course Enrolment Limitations**- The course is only offered to the students of the study fields the course is directly associated with.

**fields of study / plans the course is directly associated with**- there are 18 fields of study the course is directly associated with, display
**Course objectives**- The course consists of descriptive statistics and principles of
probability theory. The tutorials include motivation of the elementary concepts, key statements and calculation of
typical examples. The topics follow a fixed procedure: descriptive statistical characteristics of nominal, ordinal, interval and proportional indicators; regression line; the basic properties of probability, stochastic independence of phenomena, conditional
probability; random variables and vectors, their discrete and continuous type; joint distribution and stochastic independence of random variables; characteristics of random
variables; asymptotic expressions; normal and other exact distributions.

At the end of this course, students should be able to:

understand terms from probability and statistics; correctly present real data; apply basics of probability to simple real situations. **Learning outcomes**- After graduation of the course student should be able to:

- use and interpret functional and numeric characteristics within a framework of descriptive statistics

- describe types of variables with respect to measurement scale

- quantify randomness in elementary setting by probability

- use and properly interpret distributional function, probability function and density function

- determine in mathematical statistics popular distributions with respect to the application context **Syllabus**- 1. Frequency and probability, properties of probability, examples.
- 2. Independent events, properties of independent events, sequence of independent events.
- 3. Conditional probability, total probability rule, examples.
- 4. Prior and posterior probabilities, Bayes' theorem, examples.
- 5. Descriptive statistics, quantitative variables, qualitative variables; frequency distributions in tables and graphs, examples of data sets.
- 6. Functional characteristics and numerical descriptive measures for univariate and multivariate quantitative variables, examples.
- 7. Random variable, distribution function and its properties, discrete and continous variable, transformation of random variable.
- 8. Discrete probability distribution, probability function and its properties; continuous probability distribution, probability density and its properties; random vector and its functional characteristics.
- 9. Simultaneous and marginal random vectors, independent random variables, sequence of Bernoulli trials.
- 10. Examples of discrete and continuous probability distributions and their application in the field of economics.
- 11. Numerical measures of probability distribution: expected value, variance, quantile, their properties and application in economics.
- 12. Numerical measures of simultaneous probability distribution: covariance, correlation coefficient, their properties and application in economics.
- 13. Characteristics of random vectors, inequality theorems (Markov inequality theorem, Cebysev inequality theorem).
