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.
Prerequisites: AS/SC/MATH2030.03 or permission of the course
Exclusions: former AS/SC/MATH3030.03
