ECON 451 is an accelerated introduction to mathematical statistics that requires complete fluency with advanced differential calculus, including sums of infinite series, differentiation, and integration. The purpose of the course is to provide you with a deep theoretical understanding of the foundations of statistical inference, and to show the relevance of this theory in economics. Topics include probability theory, discrete and continuous random variables, sampling distributions, hypotheses testing, properties of estimators including maximum likelihood and method of moments, and an introduction to linear models and least squares estimation.
