Syllabus including Course Literature

The course contains the body of basic principles, methods and results underlying the statistical analysis of data. In this course we introduce desirable properties that good estimators and hypothesis tests should have and use them as criteria in the development of optimal estimators and test procedures. Methods for finding and evaluating estimators and methods for finding and evaluating tests are treated and also asymptotic evaluations of estimators and tests are considered.
