- Don't hesistate to contact me if you have questions: bouchard AT stat.ubc.ca (all emails should have a subject starting with the exact string 'STAT560 ')

A detailed theoretical development: statistical models, exponential families, sufficiency, completeness, and detailed properties of point estimation. Additional topics selected from Bayesian inference, estimating equations, numerical methods, and penalized models. Intended for honours and graduate students.

MATH 320, STAT 305 is recommended. If you are unsure, contact me by email with your (unofficial) graduate and undergraduate transcripts attached.
