  • Overview

    Advanced statistical analysis in areas such as marketing, survey design and financial modelling requires insight into the mathematical foundations of statistics. This subject aims to develop such insight and introduces students to the concepts and terminology required in more advanced applications. Topics include probability, random variables and their probability distributions, limiting distributions, multivariate probability distributions, functions of random variables, estimators and their properties, hypotheses and their tests, and order statistics.
