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.
