    The goal Objective of the course is for the students to be informed about the statistical methods for signal classification: hypothesis testing, parametric and nonparametric classification.
    The outcome Learning outcomes of the course are following: students´ ability to generate or to collect high quality and informative training sets of data, to apply appropriate statistical pattern recognition technique (hypothesis testing, parametric or nonparametric classifier).
    Contents of lectures Overview of random variables and vectors; Important results from linear algebra ; Hypothesis testing methods; Design of parametric classifiers; Design of nonparametric classifiers; Reduction dimension methods; Signal classification based on fuzzy logic and neural networks.
    Contents of exercises During the course students have to solve three practical problems: 1. Design of Bayes classifier and sequential test; 2. Design of linear and quadratic classifier; 3. Signal classification based on fuzzy logic.
