3rd Section

Probability, Statistics and Operations Research

Probability, Statistics and Operations Research constitute the area of research of the third Section of the Department of Mathematics. Probability and Statistics is the branch of Mathematics which is concerned with the concept of uncertainty (probability), the design of experiments and sampling methods, the collection and analysis of measurements (numerical data) and the extraction of inferences. It also deals with the study of random phenomena, the development of stochastic models for the purpose of describing various natural, social, biological and other phenomena, and generally with the theory and applications of stochastic processes. Subjects such as opinion polls, demographic surveys, quality control, sampling surveys, clinical trials, retrospective and prospective medical studies, etc. belong to the field of Probability and Statistics.

Operations Research is the field of Mathematics that deals with the optimisation of multivariate functions under various types of constraints and the study of stochastic systems like queuing systems, inventory control, human resource systems, population models, etc. Operations Research has its roots in theoretical mathematics and finds applications in all areas of human activity where problems of modelling and optimisation occur. The faculty of the Section are also interested in the study and understanding of the applications of their science to the problems of medicine, chemistry, agriculture, psychology and education.
