 Synopsis:

The aim is to introduce the basic theory of probability and statistics, familiarise students with basic terms properties and methods used in working with random processes, especially with Markov chains, and show applications of these mathematical tools in economics and insurance. At the end of the course, basic procedures of cluster analysis will be presented.
 Requirements:
 Syllabus of lectures:

1. Review of the basics of probability  random event, random variable, working with random variables.
2. The importance of some discrete random variables in the economy Poisson and binomial distribution.
