AbstractNonparametric tests, randomization tests, jackknife and bootstrap, as well as asymptotic properties of estimators.
ObjectiveFor classical parametric models there exist optimal statistical estimators and test statistics whose distributions can often be determined exactly. The methods covered in this course allow for finding statistical procedures for more general models and to derive exact or approximate distributions of complicated estimators and test statistics.
ContentNonparametric tests, randomization tests, jackknife and bootstrap, as well as asymptotic properties of estimators.
Prerequisites / NoticeThis course is part of the programme for the certificate and diploma in Advanced Studies in Applied Statistics. It is given every second year in the winter semester break.
