dr. G.J.M. Marée
A healthy mathematical and statistical curiosity.
At the end of the course the student can:
In this course it will be demonstrated that it is very important to use mathematical and statistical techniques in a proper way. It will be seen that in industry and science these disciplines are not always used in a proper way. Moreover, the student will learn more about the mathematics of finance, other dimensions, probability calculus, paradoxes, mathematical models, and other dimensions.
Descriptive Statistics, Probability Calculus, Conditional probabilities, Bayes’ rule, Statistical and Mathematical paradoxes, Mathematical Reasoning, Noise, Huge and Small numbers in Science, Mathematics of Finance, geometric and arithmetic sequences, the fourth dimension, the (mis)use of Statistics and Mathematics in Science and Industry, Mathematical Riddles, Fractals, Chaos, Complex number theory, (systems of) difference and differential equations.
(12 lectures; two hours per lecture; combined with assignments)
4 assignments (each with weight 10%); one final test (3 hours; weight 60%, open questions); in case of a retake the result of the assignments will remain valid, so in that case the grade for the course is determined by the grade of the retake (60%) and the grade of the assignments (40%).
The schedule will be available on Datanose
Registration is possible for 2nd year (or higher) students participating in an Honours programme.
