CSci 502: Statistics for Computational Science and Analysis

Graduate Course, TAMUC, 2018

This course provides an introductory framework for the statistical background required for scientific computation and data analysis. The course introduces fundamental statistical concepts such as probability, random variables, probability distributions, statistical expectation, sampling distributions, hypothesis testing, linear regression, correlation, and visualization/plotting of data, with emphasis on applications to scientific computing and computational science problems. Concepts will be reinforced by having students use a statistical/scientific computing & visualization software in order to apply the concepts that they learn by solving problems from various disciplines.
