Inhalt des Seminars
In this seminar we discuss some of the statistical and mathematical foundations of causality and causal modeling, with applications in biology and medicine. Causality is an important topic not only in all fields of complex systems studies (such as systems biology or econometrics/-physics) but also in medicine (e.g. clinical studies).
The seminar is intended for advanced students/researchers in mathematics, statistics, physics, and computer science. It requires some a priori knowledge of statistics and probability theory.
