Mathematical statistics is about data analysis using different tools from mathematics like probability theory. The analyzed data is often assumed to exhibit some influence from Random processes.

Azimuth will concentrate on the use of mathematical statistics in Earth sciences and Climate models, as a tool to enable an objective assessment of measurements, experiments and models.

Mathematical statistics is a huge subject, and there is a multiplicity of textbooks. Any recommendation is therefore to be considered to be an example only.

The standard software for statistical analysis and modeling is called “R”, it is an open source freeware that comes with its own programming language, scripting capabilities, a GUI, a lot of standard functions etc. For more information follow this link to the project’s homepage.
