Module title & Course code Applications of Probability and Statistics MAS174 Lecturer Dr Jonathan Jordan Course description University course content This unit explores a number of different types of application of probability and statistics. It introduces the idea of computer simulation, along with basic techniques for random number generation. It also introduces the idea of probability modelling and illustrates it using the Poisson process and simulation in R. It presents the basic concepts of decision theory and Bayesian inference. To indicate the range of potential applications, and to illustrate general techniques for mathematical problem solving, several extended problems and case studies, from a variety of areas, will be presented. Prerequisites: MAS100 (Mathematics with Maple); MAS101 (Probability, Sets and Complex Numbers); MAS113 (Introduction to Probability and Statistics) Corequisites: MAS170 (Practical Calculus); MAS171 (Matrices and Geometry) A Level course content Not applicable, as the statistical ideas encountered at A level have been seen in the module MAS113.
