For senior and first year graduate level two-semester sequence in probability and mathematical statistics. Requires calculus.
Exceptionally clear and impeccably accurate, the fifth edition of this trusted text offers a careful presentation of the probability needed for mathematical statistics and the mathematics of statistical inference. Offering a strong background for those who wish to go on to study statistical applications or more advanced theory, this text presents the most thorough treatment of the mathematics of statistics of any competing text.
Probability for mathematical statistics: Random variables are introduced by the one variable case followed by the multivariate case. Then, special and important distributions are considered followed by sampling distributions and limiting distributions.
Statistical inference: After a brief introduction to statistical inference, sufficient statistics are presented followed by uses in estimation and statistical tests. These, in turn, are applied to normal and other important models. Distribution-free techniques follow.
