Statistics (Desautels Faculty of Management)
Statistics is motivated by the need to extract information from data, to quantify uncertainty, and to make predictions about random phenomena. To do this effectively, sophisticated mathematical and probabilistic techniques and computational tools are needed. Core areas of expertise include Bayesian inference, biostatistics, computational statistics, highdimensional data modeling, multivariate analysis, and survival analysis.
DETAILED PROGRAM OUTLINES:
Program Requirement:
Mentor: Professor R. Steele; Department of Mathematics and Statistics, Faculty of Science
All B.Com. students take a Core curriculum in addition to this Major.
Students entering the Major concentration in Statistics are normally expected to have completed MATH 133, MATH 140, and MATH 141 or their equivalents. Otherwise they will be required to make up any deficiencies in these courses over and above the 39 credits required by the program.
