Cilji predmeta

The concepts of probability and statistics are the basis for financial modeling. The course presents the essential concepts of probability necessary for risk management. The statistical part of the course deals with statistical models, parameter estimation, data analysis and their relevance for financial modeling. Concept of accuracy of estimation, diagnistics, hypothesis testing and back testing models are part of the course.
