Leerdoelen  The aim of the course is that students obtain insight on the role of asymptotic theory in statistical estimation theory. The student is able 1) to apply basic modes of convergence in probability problems 2) to derive, develop, and interpret maximum likelihood or minimum chisquare inference methods for a number of estimation problems 3) to apply Laws of Large Numbers and versions of the Central Limit Theorem 4) to determine necessary and sufficient conditions for consistent and efficient estimators for a wide scope of problems 

Omschrijving  In this course the properties of probabilistic modes of convergence and their partial converses are analyzed in detail. Three Laws of Large Numbers and two versions of the Central Limit Theorem are proven, discussed and illustrated. To obtain a wider scope of application of these theorems, we introduce the Slutsky and Delta theorems. This forms the mathematical basis of regularity assumptions making statistical estimation possible based on maximum likelihood and minimum chisquare. Throughout the course we provide examples as well as counter examples to deepen insight.
