Why do we use particular statistical techniques, and how do they work? This course covers the theory behind both standard and computationally intensive techniques for investigating and modelling data (estimation and hypothesis testing).
On successful completion of this course students should be able to :
1. understand the basic concepts underlying estimation theory and hypothesis testing;
2. explain the underlying assumptions and the applicability of each of the approaches studied;
3. determine appropriate methods for practical inference problems and apply such methods to data.
- Estimation methods
- Hypothesis Testing
- Evaluating tests
- Monte Carlo Simulation methods for inference
- Randomisation tests
- Bootstrap methods.
