Dear Students,

We published training sheet H, exercise sheet H and the sample solutions to training sheet G. These are all available on the materials page.

Note that exercise sheet H is a bonus sheet. That means you cannot lose any points this week, but instead catch up by earning up to 9 bonus points. The content covered (maximum likelihhod estimation) by this sheet is however still relevant for the exam so preparing this sheet is highly recommended in any case.

Dear Students,

We published training sheet G, exercise sheet G, the sample solutions to training sheet F and the script chapter on parameter estimation. These are all available on the materials page. We also uploaded new videos from the 2020 video course in the forum.

As already announced in the introductory lecture, the main exam will take place on July 18, 8:30am. Please do not forget to register for the exam in the LSF (at least 2 weeks prior). There will also be a re-exam on October 20 10am. Obtaining the exam admission qualifies you to participate in both exams. You pass the course if you pass at least one of the exams. Your final grade will be calculated from the exam with the better grade.

Furthermore, we would like to remind you that especially the on-site office hours (Monday, Friday) are a great place for working on the exercise sheets. Having concrete questions is not a prerequisite for visiting: you can also just come to the office hour, work on the exercises there, and if a question comes up, our tutors will be more than happy to help!

Dear Students,

since some teams are already starting to disband, we are reopening the team groupings. Thus it is possible again to leave your current team, or join other teams (provided you know their invite code). This is meant to simplify the regrouping process for teams where some members dropped the course and enables them to self-organize. If you are looking for a new group, because your team disbanded, you can once again use the forum.

We kindly ask you to treat this feature responsibly, i.e.,

  • do not create new (permament) single-member teams,
  • try to keep your teams size at 3 or more if possible
  • make sure to notify your team members in beforehand if you are planning to join another team.

We will be closely monitoring your usage of this feature and may decide to revoke it if necessary.

Dear Students,

we decided to tentatively move the regular lecture slot. Thus, starting next week, there will be only one lecture per week on Tuesday 8:30. If we decide that another week with two lectures is required, it will be announced in time. Since todays lecture did not cover all families of discrete distributions, you should consider watching the videos on the poisson distribution and its relationship to the binomial distribution (Video 3.5.3 - 3.5.5), or read up on them in the lecture notes.

Dear Students,

the team groupings are now complete. If your team disbands over the course of the semester, you can let us know and we will try to assign you to a new team. If you do not know how to contact your team members: you can do so using the personal message function in the forum. The forum/CMS usernames of your team members are now displayed in a separate section titled 'Team Members' on your personal status page.

If any of you did not yet join the forum, it is thus vital you do so now, such that your team members are able to contact you! In case any of you are unable to contact your team members please do not hesitate to ask us for help in the forum.

This is especially important as the submission deadline for exercise sheet A draws close. Regarding the submission process, please keep in mind that

  • solutions to the exercises have to be submitted online on your personal status page as three separate files, one for each exercise,
  • only one team member should submit your teams solutions.

Finally, we would like to remind you that in order to receive full points for exercises that ask you to conduct a mathematical proof, it is necessary that you justify every step of your proof.
