MATH-442 / 5 crédits

Enseignant: Koch Erwan Fabrice

Langue: Anglais

## Summary

The course aims at developing certain key aspects of the theory of statistics, providing a common general framework for statistical methodology. While the main emphasis will be on the mathematical aspects of statistics, an effort will be made to balance rigor and intuition.

## Recommended courses

Real Analysis, Linear Algebra, Probability, Statistics.

## Learning Outcomes

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

• Formulate the various elements of a statistical problem rigorously.
• Formalize the performance of statistical procedures through probability theory.
• Systematize broad classes of probability models and their structural relation to inference.
• Construct efficient statistical procedures for point/interval estimation and testing in classical contexts.
• Derive certain exact (finite sample) properties of fundamental statistical procedures.
• Derive certain asymptotic (large sample) properties of fundamental statistical procedures.
• Formulate fundamental limitations and uncertainty principles of statistical theory.
• Prove certain fundamental structural and optimality theorems of statistics.

## Teaching methods
