Content and organization

In this course we will develop statistical inference from the practical point of view. We will first make a brief introduction on point estimation and confidence sets. Then we will focus on non-parametric inference (empirical pdf, plug-in estimators). In a third section we will introduce bootstrapping which permits to get confidence intervals by resampling in the data. In a fourth section we will study method of moments and maximum likelihood inference from a practical point of view. In a firth section we will work on multiple regression from a practical point of view.
