Synopsis:

The covered material splits into three blocks: (i) Important relations and theorems necessary in the area of the theory of reliability and mathematical statistics, (ii) Analytical and simulation methods to analyze reliability of structures, (iii) Advanced methods of reliability analysis exploiting the Bayesian inference in conjunction with MCMC simulation.

List of lectures:

1. Basic relations, definitions and notation, 2. Selected probability distributions and important inequalities, 3. Transformation of probability density function (one and more variables), 4. Reliability of simple structures, 5. Evolution of reliability in time, 6. Reliability and solution methods, 7. Renewable systems, 8. Reflection of the theory in EC standards, 9. Analytical methods to address reliability, 10. Simulation methods, 11. Monte Carlo type simulation, 12. MCMC sampling (Markov chain-Monte Carlo, Bayesian statistical method).
