Probability and Statistics


Probability and statistics are the parts of mathematics that deal with real phenomena that have a component of uncertainty (randomness). Probability studies the mathematical models for this randomness. Statistics deals with the problem of the choice of suitable models for the phenomena of our interest.

All scientific areas use probability and statistics either for the treatment of experimental data or in order to predict new outcomes.

These areas have a long tradition in Barcelona, where there are different groups working in their theoretical and applied aspects.

Links to research groups

Researchers in the Barcelona area, and more generally in Catalonia, group themselves into smaller research groups, following not only academic but also administrative criteria, like location or research grants.
