STAT4060J – Computational Methods for Statistics and Data Science


Mark Fredrickson

Credits: 4

Pre-requisites: MATH2160J/256/286,ECE4010J,ENGR1010J


Computation is the beating heart of modern statistics. Large data sets, complex models, and novel data collection methods all necessarily require heavy computation, but computation also allows applications of elegant theories that defy pen and paper solutions.

Course Topics:

In this course, we will explore the complementary relationship of theory and application provided by modern computational tools and techniques using the R programming language. Theoretical results will be illustrated with a wide variety of applied research.
