Elementary Probability Calculus and Statistics
The lecture deals with modern empirical process theory. Empirical process theory started in the 1930s and 1940s with the analysis of the empirical distribution function. Back then, the main interest focused on deriving uniform convergence statements for the empirical distribution function. Modern empirical process theory deals with general uniform convergence statements, in particular, with uniform laws of large numbers (Glivenko-Cantelli theorems) and uniform central limit theorems (Donsker theorems). It is an indispensable theoretical tool for many modern fields of statistics including non- and semiparametrics, high-dimensional statistics, machine learning and biostatistics.
