Description

This is a half-term course for fourth year and graduate students. The purpose of this course is to introduce the students to state-of-the art computer software for research work in statistics.

I have always had good student evaluations with this course but the class size is small about 6 to 15 students per year. I have taught this course for 3 years.

Topics:
  • Statistical graphics
  • Simulation solution of problems in probability
  • Bootstrapping
Subject

*Mathematics > Probability and Statistics
