|091013||7||More on simulation of random variables: pdf-fileThis non-mandatory lecture gives additional important facts about simulation of random variables. Note that there is no laboration on this lecture, and that it is up to each student to decide individually if he or she want to learn the subject matter covered by the lecture. The teachers of the course have the opinion that on the one hand, the material is very important for a statistician to know about.|
The computer room MVF:25 is booked for our laborations Mondays and Thursdays 8.00-11.45 starting Thursday September 3rd. Sofia will visit the computer room then and then during these hours to answer questions.
Examination is handled by means of 6 mandatory laborations, which are preferably carried out in pairs of 2 students. Individually written reports are to be handed in on the laborations, and examination is done based on the reports as follows: Each report is given a grade between 0 and 15 points. At Chalmers, a total score on the projects between 0-44 means failure, 45-59 gives grade 3, 60-74 gives grade 4 and 75-90 gives grade 5. At GU, 0-44 means failure, 45-67 gives grade G and 68-90 gives grade VG.
For students with low attendance at lectures and laborations a short
oral or written exam may be required just to check that the student has prepared
his/her reports himself/herself. (This happens very seldom.) Albeit
laborations are usually carried out in pairs, it is required that each
student writes his/her own report. Otherwise it might again be
necessary with a short oral exam.
