The Institute


The main field of teaching at the Institute of Statistics concerns the bachelor and master studies of Technical Mathematics. We therefore offer courses in the core education as well as several special courses for more detailed studies.

In addition the institute is responsible for the basic education in the fields of statistics, probability theory and stochastics for studies in Telematics, Computer Science, Software Development-Business and Civil Engineering.


Fundamental research in probability theory, mathematical statistics and financial mathematics (asymptotic methods, limit theorems), stochastic processes (structural changes and long-range dependence), financial time series (GARCH-models). Methodical investigations include stochastic simulation (queuing systems) and statistical modeling (generalized linear models). Application of statistical methods in medicine (clinical studies, lifetime modeling), environmental research (exploratory data analysis, prediction and forecasting) and high-tech companies (experimental design, multivariate process control). Periodical organization of international conferences and workshops.
