    Written permission of instructor and the department course coordinator required to enroll in this course.

  • STAT431 - STATISTICAL INFERENCE

    Graphical displays; one- and two-sample confidence intervals; one- and two-sample hypothesis tests; one- and two-way ANOVA; simple and multiple linear least-squares regression; nonlinear regression; variable selection; logistic regression; categorical data analysis; goodness-of-fit tests. A methodology course. This course does not have business applications but has significant overlap with STAT 101 and 102.

    Decision theory and statistical optimality criteria, sufficiency, point estimation and hypothesis testing methods and theory.

  • STAT991 - SEM IN ADV APPL OF STAT

    This seminar will be taken by doctoral candidates after the completion of most of their coursework. Topics vary from year to year and are chosen from advance probability, statistical inference, robust methods, and decision theory with principal emphasis on applications.
