Should optics students know statistics?
Author(s): Anna Consortini

Paper Abstract

Optics students' need for statistical knowledge is investigated. By statistics I mean both probability and statistics. By starting with a simple interferometer some different cases are presented where, from no need for statistical knowledge, one reaches cases where simple probability is needed and finally cases that require profound knowledge of statistics.
