Mathematical Statistics I

Formerly known as MATH3030

This course is intended for students who need a theoretical foundation in mathematical statistics. Students who have taken this course normally take MATH3132.03 in the second term. This course continues where Math2030.03 left off while providing a theoretical foundation for many of the statistical procedures learned in Math1131.03 and Math1132.03. Topics will include some aspects of probability theory including change of variables, common distributions, principle of likelihood, the method of maximum likelihood, likelihood regions, tests of significance, tests of hypotheses, likelihood ratio tests, goodness of fit tests, conditional tests and confidence sets.
