The goal Learning about discrete and continuous stochastic models and their applications, in particular in computer sciences.
The outcome A student will have a basic knowledge about simple and moderately complex discrete and continuous stochastic models and typical applications, particularly in computer sciences. He/she will be able to apply correct models in real life problems, and also to apply corresponding tools and procedures of statistics and probability.
