Course objectives
The main goal of the course is to become familiar with some basic principles of testing statistical hypotheses base on Wald principle, likelihood and score principle connecting the statistical theory with MC simulations, implementation in R, geometry, and statistical graphics for continuous data; to understand and explain basic principles of parametric statistical inference for continuous data; to implement these techniques into R language; to be able to apply them to real data.
Learning outcomes
Student will be able:
- to understand principles of likelihood and statistical inference for continuous data;
- to select suitable probabilistic and statistical model in statistical inference for continuous data;
- to build up and explain suitable simulation study for selected statistical test or confidence interval for continuous data;
- to build up and explain suitable statistical test for continuous data;
- to apply statistical inference on real continuous data;
- to implement methods of statistical inference for continuous data in R.

Teacher's information
The lectures are usually in Czech or in English as needed, and the relevant terminology is always given with English equivalents.

The target skills of the study include the ability to use the English language passively and actively in their own expertise and also in potential areas of application of mathematics.

Assessment in all cases may be in Czech and English, at the student's choice.

The lectures will take place online at MS Teams at the time of the normal lectures according to the schedule. Due to the possible low signal quality, I recommend students not to use the camera. Questions during the lecture will not be possible to ask by voice, but by chat.

The recording from the lecture will be uploaded in the IS sequentially and not in advance, so the recording will be uploaded only after the given lecture and before the next lecture. The recordnig does not have to contain a complete lecture, it is up to a teacher what to share from the record and share it with the students. What is a lecture recording? It can be a PDF of text written by the lecturer on the screen with an electronic pen during the lecture, and this can be supplemented by the voice (or voice and video) of the lecturer. Slides in PDF with TeX-ed text will always be available in the IS and will be shared only after the given lecture and before the next lecture.

Consultations about the lectures will take place through a discussion forum, where the lecturer / instructor moderates this discussion and new discussion forums established by students will not be taken into account. Discussion forums will be based on individual lectures and practicals (if the course has practicals) and about homework. Discussions by e-mail will not take place.

The course is also listed under the following terms Autumn 2013, Autumn 2014, Autumn 2015, Autumn 2016, autumn 2017, Autumn 2018, Autumn 2019, autumn 2021.
