Course objectives
The main goal of the course is to become familiar with some basic principles of testing statistical hypotheses base on Wald principle, likelihood and score principle connecting the statistical theory with MC simulations, implementation in R, geometry, and statistical graphics; to understand and explain basic principles of parametric statistical inference for categorical data; to implement these techniques in R language; to be able to apply them to real data;
  • discrete probability distributions, maximum likelihood estimates of their parameters,
  • principles of MC simulations in testing statistical hypotheses,
  • design in one-, two-, and multi-sample experiments,
  • design for contingency tables,
  • design in linear regression model for categorical data,
