Description
Learning outcomes 

The student knows basics of statistical estimation and inference in the analysis of independent and dependent data.

 
Content 

The joint distribution of a random sample, statistic, sample mean, sample variance and sample covariance and their properties. The concept of estimator and its central properties (bias, variance, root mean square error and efficiency). Law of large numbers and the central limit theorem. Estimation methods: maximum likelihood, least squares, the method of moments, and Bayesian estimation. Interval estimation and hypothesis testing.
