Beschreibung: Stochastics comprises the areas probability theory and mathematical statistics and is concerned with the mathematical modelling of random events. Methods and results from stochastics are connected to various other areas of mathematics and are indispensable tools in almost all areas of science, technology and economics. In consequence, stochastics is also an important topic in the mathematics education in schools. The aim of the lecture courses offered by the Institute of Stochastics is to provide an overview of the mathematical theory and of the range of possible applications. The research interests of the members of the Institute of Stochastics are in the areas of stochastic analysis und stochastic numerics with applications in Biology and Neuroscience, as well as Statistics, Time Series Analysis and Reliability Theory.
