*The sample mean,, is a statistic; the population mean, ,is not.That is because a statistic is observable, being computed from the observations, while a population parameter, being a philosophical abstraction, is not observable, and thus must be estimated. The fidelity of the estimate depends on the number of observations used in computing the statistic.I have felt that there should be some content on probability & statistics specifically focused on data science. I would like to mention that my focus in these posts would be to give intuition on every topic and how it relates to data science rather going deep into mathematical formulas.*

Descriptive statistics; elementary probability theory; random variables, discrete and continuous probability distributions, expectation, joint, marginal and conditional distributions; linear functions of random variables; random sampling and sampling distributions; point and interval estimation; classical hypothesis testing and significance testing. Before these dates the class schedule will show "No classes were found that meet your search criteria".

More Problems on probability and statistics are presented.

The answers to these problems are at the bottom of the page.

If you estimate the mean and standard deviation in the usual way, and if you assume that the observations are from a normal density, you would compute that the probability is p=0.1 that a new observation would be less than zero.

(If you were paying attention to the very small sample size and used the density, rather than the normal, you would have p=0.12.) But these observations are not from a normal density, rather they are log-normal, something that a quantile-quantile plot would have suggested.

## Probability Distributions in R Stat 5101, Geyer

R Functions for Probability Distributions. Every distribution that R handles has four functions. There is a root name, for example, the root name for the normal distribution is norm. This root is prefixed by one of the letters p for "probability", the cumulative distribution function c. d. f. q for "quantile", the inverse c. d. f.…

Conditional probability means that it’s actually possible for a particular policing decision rule to be simultaneously efficient in the sense of “maximizes criminals caught per officer/resource” and racially biased in the sense of “given that you are x race, you are more or less likely than someone totally equivalent in behavior of another race to be stopped by police.”…

## Probability density function - Wikipedia

In probability theory, a probability density function PDF, or density of a continuous random variable, is a function whose value at any given sample or point in the sample space the set of possible values taken by the random variable can be interpreted as providing a relative likelihood that the value of the random variable would equal that sample.…
