General Prerequisites
Linear algebra and matrices, Basic principles from statistics theory, Least-squares adjustment theory, Fundamentals of Surveying and Geodesy, Coordinate systems and reference frames.
Learning Outcomes
After the successful completion of this course, the students will be able to apply basic knowledge from least squares theory to resolve special types of data adjustment problems, such as: (1) interpolation and predicition of unknown signals from discrete observations based on stochastic models, (2) optimal parameter estimation in ill-conditioned linear models, and (3) data adjustment problems with dynamic models based on Kalman filtering. The students will learn essential techniques for the numerical solution of the above problems based on the use of Matlab programming language.
General Competences
• Apply knowledge in practice
• Retrieve, analyse and synthesise data and information, with the use of necessary technologies
• Adapt to new situations
• Make decisions
• Work autonomously
• Work in teams
• Work in an international context
• Work in an interdisciplinary team
• Generate new research ideas
• Advance free, creative and causative thinking
