 Synopsis:

The course leads the student through advanced probabilistic and statistical methods used in information technology praxis. Particularly it deals with multivariate normal distribution, application of entropy in coding theory, hypothesis testing (Ttests, goodness of fit tests, independence test). Second part of the course deals with random processes with focus on Markov chains. The high point of the course is the Queuing theory and its application in networks.
