The student shall aquire a toolbox containing concepts and models for description and handling of stationary stochastic processes within many different areas, such as, signal processing, automatic control, information theory, economics, biology, chemistry, and medicine. The mathematical and statistical elements are therefore illustrated using a wide variety of examples from different areas of application.

The course shall also give the student the ability to identify the presence of stationary processes in other courses in the education, use the knowledge of stationary processes in other courses, and translate the concepts and tools between different courses, building on stationary processes.
