ECON 503 is a graduate-level accelerated introduction to mathematical statistics. The purpose of this course is to provide students with a deep theoretical understanding of the fundamentals of probability theory and statistical inference. Topics include probability theory, discrete and continuous random variables and their probability distributions, multivariate distributions, sampling distributions, testing hypotheses, properties of estimators including maximum likelihood and method of moments, and least squares. More advanced topics include transformations of random variables, conditional distributions and conditional moments, and the Delta method in statistics.
