Summary

In the decades from 1930 to 1950, many rank-based statistics were introduced. These methods were received with much interest, because they worked under weak conditions. Starting in the late 1950, a theory of robustness was added. The course gives an overview of these two approaches to data analysis.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course, the student must be able to:

  • Expound the content of the course.
  • Apply the statistical methods explained in the course.
  • Sketch the proofs of the theoretical results given in the course.
  • Choose the appropriate robust or non parametric methods for a given data analysis problem.
  • Differentiate between robust and non-parametric methods.
  • Generalize the tools treated in the course to other problems.
  • Apply spline and kernel smoothers.
  • Apply M-estimatiors in a variety of situations.
