Spring 2007

#### General Information

**Objectives **

ST430 is a sequel to ST420. It builds on material covered in ST420
and completes a first introduction to probability and mathematical
statistics. Similar to ST420, ST430 will focus more on the
mathematical aspects of statistics and little on actual data analysis.

Topics to be covered include:
- methods for parameter estimation
- properties of different estimators
- decision rules and hypothesis testing
- two-sample problems
- goodness-of-fit tests

**Prerequisite **

ST420 - **Enforced**
