STSCI 3080 - Probability Models and Inference

(also BTRY 3080 , ILRST 3080 ) (MQR)
Fall, spring. 4 credits.

Forbidden Overlap: Students may receive credit for only one course in the following group: BTRY 3080 /ILRST 3080 /STSCI 3080, ECON 3110 /ILRST 3110 /STSCI 3110 ECON 3125 (formerly 3210) , ECON 3130 (formerly 3190) , MATH 4710 .
F. Bunea.

This course provides an introduction to probability and parametric inference. Topics include: random variables, standard distributions, the law of large numbers, the central limit theorem, likelihood-based estimation, sampling distributions and hypothesis testing, as well as an introduction to Bayesian methods. Some assignments may involve computation using the R programming language.

Outcome 1: Students will be able to manipulate random variables and their distributions using differential and integral calculus.

Outcome 2: Students will be able to derive properties of standard probability.

Outcome 3: Students will be able to derive maximum likelihood estimators for standard probability distributions and discuss their properties.
