This file will be
updated a few times during the next few weeks.
The first part of this handout introduces the method of moments estimation technique which corresponds to Chapter
8.4 in the test.
The second part of this hand out corresponds to Chapter 8.5, the method of maximum likelihood estimation.
January 14, 2011 : R script leading to ideas of comparing estimators
EstEG1exponential.txt
This script will illustrate how we can compare estimators. Since only one of these has a distribution that we can
analytically obtain we use numerical methods. The numerical methods are also useful for something called
parametric bootstrap.
January 17, 2011 : Continuation to compare estimators

This is related to the approximation methods of Section 4.6, combining that topic
with the CLT
