 Goal.

This
course
deals
with
the
mathematical
principles
that
underlie
and
justify
 the
most
common
basic
techniques
of
statistical
inference.

The
focus
is
not
on
the
 development
and
use
of
techniques
for
dealing
with
complex
statistical
problems,
 but
on
understanding
the
most
commonly
used
statistical
methods
clearly
and
 rigorously.
 
 Textbook.
Casella
and
Berger:
Statistical
Inference
2nd
ed.
 
 I
selected
this
book
because
it
is
frequently
cited
as
required
background
in
more
advanced
books
 and
courses.

The
Amazon.com
reviews
are
mixed,
however,
which
suggests
that
this
might
not
be
a
 “one‐stop”
source
for
all
students.

I
will
suggest
readings
from
other
sources
at
strategic
times.
