Inference Theory

This course gives you an in-depth understanding of basic statistical principles, such as the principles of sufficiency, ancilliarity, invariance, and conditionality. Bayesian, likelihood-basedand Neyman-Pearson inference are applied and exemplified through point-estimation, interval estimation, and hypothesis testing.

You will learn about important theorems in inference theory and convergence-properties of estimators. You will also learn how to derive important point estimators, interval estimators, and test statistics in some selected applications.

The course provides a solid base for research studies in statistics.
