406-2004-AAL | Algebra IIEnrolment ONLY for MSc students with a decree declaring this course unit as an additional admission requirement. Any other students (e.g. incoming exchange students, doctoral students) CANNOT enrol for this course unit. | E- | 5 credits | 11R | M. Burger | |

Abstract | Galois theory and related topics. The precise content changes with the examiner. Candidates must therefore contact the examiner in person before studying the material. | |||||

Objective | Introduction to fundamentals of field extensions, Galois theory, and related topics. | |||||

Content | The main topic is Galois Theory. Starting point is the problem of solvability of algebraic equations by radicals. Galois theory solves this problem by making a connection between field extensions and group theory. Galois theory will enable us to prove the theorem of Abel-Ruffini, that there are polynomials of degree 5 that are not solvable by radicals, as well as Galois' theorem characterizing those polynomials which are solvable by radicals. | |||||

Abstract | - Statistical models - Methods of moments - Maximum likelihood estimation - Hypothesis testing - Confidence intervals - Introductory Bayesian statistics - Linear regression model - Rudiments of high-dimensional statistics | |||||

Objective | The goal of this part of the course is to provide a solid introduction into statistics. It offers of a wide overview of the main tools used in statistical inference. The course will start with an introduction to statistical models and end with some notions of high-dimensional statistics. Some time will be spent on proving certain important results. Tools from probability and measure theory will be assumed to be known and hence will be only and occasionally recalled. | |||||
