Contents: Excerpts of the following topics are covered in Asymptotic Statistics A

Many of the classical statistical inference procedures need specific and stringent distributional assumptions which are often not met in practice. In the course, it is shown how the tools of asymptotic statistics may provide a way out. In particular, the construction of asymptotic estimates, confidence intervals and tests is studied and depending on the student's fondness topics such as asymptotic (relative) efficiency, likelihood-ratio statistics, nonparametric density estimation, rank tests, resampling (e.g. bootstrapping and permuting), U- and V-statistics may be discussed.
