Course DescriptionCourse description. This is a one-semester course covering the basics of statistics. We will first provide a quick introduction to probability theory, and then cover fundamental topics in mathematical statistics such as point estimation, hypothesis testing and asymptotic theory. If time permits, we will also cover more advanced topics including nonparametric inference, regression and classification.
Required preliminary math tools are calculus and basic linear algebra. Familiarity with elementary probability and statistics will be helpful, but not required.
How does this course differ from 36-705?
This course covers essentially the same set of topics in statistical inference as 36-705. This course will assume less prior knowledge of probability theory and move at a slower pace.
