Welcome to the Statistics group

Statistics, challenging and applied!

Statistics is used practically everywhere, and knowledge of statistics will be important for any mathematical engineer in his/her future career. A small sample to illustrate the diversity of problems involving statistics:

  • Does a new therapy work better than the old one?
  • Is this bullet-proof jacket strong enough for the police force to meet the requirements of the Ministry of Internal Affairs?
  • Does this testosterone value give enough evidence to say this cyclist has used a certain blacklisted substance?
  • What is the expected residual life time of a patient suffering AIDS, given age and CD4-count history of this patient?
  • What is the risk that a financial institution is exposed to?
