Learning outcomes
The course is an introduction to the probability theory and statistical data processing. First part of the course is devoted to the probability theory and its applications in computer science. The second part aims at statistical methods of data analysis. Methods covered by the course are serve as theoretical bases for further analytical methods which are presented in subsequent courses during the graduate studies, for instance, statistical methods for data mining, knowledge discovery, automated hypotheses formation (GUHA methods), etc.
