```
R1.- To perform descriptive statistical analysis of data sets in order to summarize effective and precise information when drafting
reports and statements and understand these analyses as an important application of databases in different fields of management and
knowledge.
```

R2.- To apply appropriate statistical treatments according to the nature of the statistical variables included in a database.

R3.- To use a statistical package for statistical data base processing and simulation of random phenomena.

R4.- To model problems in environment of uncertainty by assigning probability event, the calculation of the conditional probability and the use of independent events.

R5. - To recognize the main stochastic models, both discrete and continuous, together with general methods of probability that can adapt to new models not specifically listed.

R6.- To model stochastic relationships between variables.

R7.- To implement and understand the basis and scope of probability applications incomputer science for teh analysis of computational complexity, the methods of random

number generation, simulation techniques, coding methods in the transmission of information, the Internet topology, treatment of transmission errors, the evolution of certain

data structures and operation of communication networks.

R8.- Using statistical tools to adequately estimate the unknown parameters of statistical models posed in engineering by methods of point estimation and interval.

R9.- Learning statistical techniques to facilitate the process of decision making in uncertain environment: hypothesis testing
