When modelling real-world problems we need to deal with uncertainty, and probability and statistics provide an effective way to quantify and explain uncertainty. This subject covers more advanced topics in both probability and frequentist statistics, including goodness-of-fit tests and regression models, and explores the mathematical and conceptual foundations of these as well as their application. Finally, Bayesian statistics is introduced alongside modern procedures commonly employed for Bayesian statistics, such as Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) methods.
