Our blogging mathematicians and statisticians Sascha Feth and Jochen Fiedler present exciting news, fun facts and interesting background knowledge about statistics, mathematics and our tool Jurojin and their work behind it in the blog and podcast »Streuspanne – Statistics and Its Curiosities«. With the software Jurojin, operational strength tests can be planned and statistically evaluated.
About our Authors:
has been at our Fraunhofer Institute since 2005 and already dealt with mathematical statistics during his doctorate. For many years he has been a lecturer in our seminars, giving interested people an understanding of vehicle development statistics. The questions he answers there are one of the inspirations for the topics of this blog.
»I would like to give engineers an intuitive access to statistics without requiring basic mathematical knowledge. To achieve this, we look at various topics from unusual perspectives.«
After studying mathematics with a focus on statistics, Jochen Fiedler joined our Fraunhofer Institute in 2015. Since then, he has been working on statistical methods for the agricultural sector and vehicle development and is also a lecturer in statistical seminars. Since Corona, he has also been blogging regularly – about all kinds of statistical issues that cross his path in private conversations.
»It is important to me not to lose sight of the big picture in the face of all the statistical numbers and measurements. That's why I want to explain how numbers come about and how their meaning could be interpreted.«
