This summer research program at MIT focuses on Mathematical Statistics, more specifically including descriptive statistics, modeling construction, and numerical computation.
Especially, several classical methods related to mathematical statistics in decision-making process will be detailly introduced, such as AHP, TOPSIS, RSR, etc. Whilst some commonly used mathematical software package such as MATLAB, SPSS, and LINGO will also introduced in the course of the statistics learning. Moreover, the research apprentics will introduced the usage of EndNote, a commercial reference management software package, used to manage bibliographies and references when writing essays and articles. Overall, by attending this program, the apprentics will have a large improvement in discovering, analyzing and solving practical problems from the mathematical perspective, that are closely related to their future studies.
