Book DescriptionThis textbook provides a unified and self-contained presentation of the main approaches to and ideas of mathematical statistics. It collects the basic mathematical ideas and tools needed as a basis for more serious studies or even independent research in statistics. The majority of existing textbooks in mathematical statistics follow the classical asymptotic framework. Yet, as modern statistics has changed rapidly in recent years, new methods and approaches have appeared. The emphasis is on finite sample behavior, large parameter dimensions, and model misspecifications. The present book provides a fully self-contained introduction to the world of modern mathematical statistics, collecting the basic knowledge, concepts and findings needed for doing further research in the modern theoretical and applied statistics. This textbook is primarily intended for graduate and postdoc students and young researchers who are interested in modern statistical methods.
The book ‘Basics of model mathematical statistics’ is built as a series of focused exercises revolving around parameter estimation, linear models, Bayesian estimation and statistical hypothesis testing. … This book is a valuable resource for undergraduates and post-graduates alike. The detailed proofs and the R code and output make it a must have for the understanding of modern mathematical statistics.
