The topic of the course is parametric statistical inference, in particular statistical theory for exponential families.
The course covers likelihood methods, exponential families, multivariate models, regression models, Fisher information and asymptotic results. The course is theoretical. It aims not only at a widening of the statistical toolbox but also at a deeper understanding of statistical methods and models, whereas concrete applications are more in the background.
The course consists of one element, assessed with a written examination.
Instruction is given in the form of lectures, exercises and compulsory assignments.
The course is assessed through written examination.
Assessment when the course is given as a distance course
Even when the course is given as a distance course, the exam is on campus. If you cannot come to Stockholm for the exam, you may be able to arrange to take the exam elsewhere, e.g. at another university or (if you are not in Sweden) at a Swedish embassy or consulate.
