STA-3001 Computer-intensive Statistics - 10 ECTS
The course includes stochastic simulation, bootstrapping, Bayes theory, Laplace methods, the EM algorithm and Bayesian methods like Markov cahin Monte Carlo (MCMC) and Integrated nested Laplace approximations (INLA). After each part the students must work independently with mandatory homework exercises.
The candidate shall:
- obtain a solid knowledge and understanding of stochastic simulation, bootstrapping, Bayes theory, Laplace methods, the EM algorithm, MCMA and INLA techniques.
- be able to apply these concepts to solve theoretical problems.¿
- be able to apply these concepts in independent homework exercises using computers.
