Syllabus of lectures:

1. Basic concepts of mathematical statistics I.

2. Basic concepts of mathematical statistics II.

3. Main statistics for experiment.

4. Estimates of unknown parameters.

5. The method of least squares.

6. The band of reliability.

7. Numerical instability and its solution.

8. Iteration methods for finding the least square.

9. The maximum likelihood method.

10. Methods for generating random samples.

11. Monte Carlo method.

12. Statistical hypotheses and their testing.

13. Examples of testing of hypothesis.
