FP-KstatPAcad. year: 2019/2020

The fundamentals of probability theory, random events, random variables, random vectors, decision-making under risk, analysis of indicies.

Learning outcomes of the course unit

Students will be made familiar with the fundamentals of probability theory, decision-making under risk and index numbers, and will learn how to use its methods to solve economic problems. After completion of this course students will be prepared to study economic topics working with uncertainty.
