Course description

This is a second course in mathematical statistics suitable for students with different backgrounds. It builds upon an introductory course in probability and statistics to give a deeper understanding of

some traditional topics in mathematical statistics such as methods based on likelihood,

topics in descriptive statistics and data analysis with special attention to graphical displays,

aspects of experimental design.

The course introduces a number of standard tools of statistical inference including bootstrap, parametric and non-parametric testing, analysis of variance, and basics of Bayesian inference.
