# Mathematical Statistics

Mathematical statistics is the theory of probability and statistics. It is the theoretical foundation of many probabilistic models, computational techniques and algorithms and their application to empirical statistical problems, data analysis, as well as to a broad range of topics in applied science and society.

The research in mathematical statistics is on probability theory, statistical models and computational tools for analysing and understanding data to discover useful information, suggest conclusions, and support various forms of decision-making. Examples of applied domains are finance, insurance, medicine, biology, computer science, and engineering.
