The aim of the course is to present and study techniques and methods of parametric statistical inference. In particular, the interest is mainly focused on the theoretical development of the field of parameter estimation (point and interval) and the development of the theory of statistical tests for testing statistical hypotheses. Moreover, this course aims to provide the necessary tools and methods which help students to be able to draw statistical conclusions on the basis of experimental data and by utilizing these methods. At the end of the course students will have acquired the theoretical background of the parametric statistical inference methodologies.
Point estimation: unbiased, sufficient and efficient estimators, unbiased estimators with minimum variance, the Cramer-Rao lower bound for the variance, Lehmann-Scheffe theory, asymptotic properties of estimators, methods of estimation (method of maximum likelihood and method of moments). Interval estimation. Confidence intervals. Testing Statistical Hypothesis: the Neyman- Pearson lemma, simple and composite hypotheses, uniformly most powerful tests, likelihood ratio tests. Large sample tests. Applications.
