By Jack Carl Kiefer (auth.), Gary Lorden (eds.)
This publication relies upon lecture notes constructed by means of Jack Kiefer for a path in statistical inference he taught at Cornell collage. The notes have been dispensed to the category in lieu of a textbook, and the issues have been used for homework assignments. depending basically on modest necessities of likelihood idea and cal culus, Kiefer's method of a primary path in records is to provide the relevant rules of the modem mathematical conception with at the least fuss and ritual. he's capable of do that through the use of a wealthy mix of examples, images, and math ematical derivations to enrich a transparent and logical dialogue of the real rules in undeniable English. The straightforwardness of Kiefer's presentation is awesome in view of the sophistication and intensity of his exam of the most important subject matter: How should still an clever individual formulate a statistical challenge and select a statistical technique to use to it? Kiefer's view, within the related spirit as Neyman and Wald, is that one may still try and investigate the results of a statistical selection in a few quan titative (frequentist) formula and should decide on a plan of action that's verifiably optimum (or approximately so) with out regard to the perceived "attractiveness" of convinced dogmas and methods.
