**Salvatore Ruggieri**- Università di Pisa

**Office hours**- Tuesday h 14:00 - 17:00, Department of Computer Science, room 321/DO.

Day of Week | Hour | Room |
---|---|---|

Monday | 14:00 - 16:00 | Fib-N1 |

Tuesday | 9:00 - 11:00 | Fib-A1 |

Students should be comfortable with most of the topics on mathematical calculus covered in:

**[P]**J. Ward, J. Abdey.**Mathematics and Statistics**. University of London, 2013.*Chapters 1-8 of Part 1*.

Extra-lessons refreshing such notions may be planned in the first part of the course.

The following are *mandatory text books*:

**[T]**F.M. Dekking C. Kraaikamp, H.P. Lopuha, L.E. Meester.**A Modern Introduction to Probability and Statistics**. Springer, 2005.**[R]**P. Dalgaard.**Introductory Statistics with R**. 2nd edition, Springer, 2008.

- Project can be done in groups of at most 3 students.
- Project must be completed by end of July, including oral discussion (on project and all topics of the course).
- Project replace the written exam but
**students have to register for the written dates in order to fill the student's questionnaire**. - Google Drive project directory (accessible only to authorized students)

Written exam consists of open questions and exercises. Example text: ** sample1**, ** sample2**. The exam lasts 2 hours. No teaching material can be consulted during the exam.
Registration is mandatory.
