AbstractThe Statistical Consulting service is open for all members of ETH, including students, and partly also to other persons.
ObjectiveAdvice for analyzing data by statistical methods.
ContentStudents and researchers can get advice for analyzing scientific data, often for a thesis.
We highly recommend to contact the consulting service when planning a project, not only towards the end of analyzing the resulting data!
Prerequisites / NoticeThis is not a course, but a consulting service. There are no exams nor credits.

Contact: beratung@stat.math.ethz.ch . Tel. 044 632 2223. See also http://stat.ethz.ch/consulting

Requirements: Knowledge of the basic concepts of statistics is desirable.

AbstractVertiefung von Statistikmethoden. Nach dem detailierten Fundament aus Statistik I liegt nun der Fokus auf konzeptueller Breite und konkreter Problemlösungsfähigkeit mit der Statistiksoftware R.
ObjectiveNach diesem Kurs können Sie mit der Statistiksoftware R Daten einlesen, auf vielfältige Art verarbeiten und Grafiken für Berichte oder Vorträge exportieren. Sie verstehen die Konzepte von Methoden wie Lineare Regression (mit Faktoren, Interaktion, Modellwahl), ANOVA (1-weg, 2-weg), Chi-Quadrat-Test, Fisher-Test, GLMs, Mixed Models, Clustering, PCA und können diese mit der Statistiksoftware R in der Praxis umsetzen. Zudem kennen Sie die Grundprinzipien von gutem experimentellem Design und können bestehende Studien kritisch hinterfragen.

AbstractIntroduction to basic methods and fundamental concepts of statistics and probability theory for non-mathematicians. The concepts are presented on the basis of some descriptive examples. Learning the statistical program R for applying the acquired concepts will be a central theme.
ObjectiveThe objective of this course is to build a solid fundament in probability and statistics. The student should understand some fundamental concepts and be able to apply these concepts to applications in the real world. Furthermore, the student should have a basic knowledge of the statistical programming language "R".
