 Competencies

 Central aim of organisation
Teaching and Research in Probability Theory, Stochastics, Mathematical and Applied Statistics

 Briefly describe your organisation
The research topics of the department cover a broad range of both types of research and research topics. Basic research is carried out for problems of probability theory, stochastic processes and time series analysis of financial data. Methodological investigations include stochastic simulation and statistical modelling, experimental design and exploratory data analysis. Applied research and development is carried out in different fields as biostatistics, environmental research, risk analysis and industrial statistics.

Contacts to the scientific community are maintained in different ways. Periodically we organize workshops and international conferences, participate in meetings and work with guest researchers.

The applied statistical projects are in close cooperation with public institutions and private companies.
Research projects are funded by national science foundations, the European community and our public and private partners.

 RTD Experience
Fundamental research in the fields of probability theory (central limit theorems), stochastics and financial time series (Garch models).
Applied research in computational statistics, simulation and statistical modelling. Joint projects with industrial partners (austria microsystems: robust design of integrated circuits; AVL List Gmbh: Reliability and life time of different materials; adaptive experimental designs; ccc.com: BLIDS- Bluetooth based data collection system), with partners from universities and public organizations (environmental statistics, reliability of pipelines, The Graz project of word length frequencies).
