Contents: The lecture "Stochastics III" is a fundamental part of each statistical education, in which especially estimation and testing in linear models is covered. These models are among the most important models in Statistics and the corresponding procedures are widely used in modeling and evaluation of various statistical problems. Topics covered include:

  • multivariate normal distribution
  • random quadratic forms
  • Least-Squares- and BLUE-estimators
  • Analysis of Variance (ANOVA)
  • Regression analysis

In the lecture, the basic methods and their theoretical properties are derived. These are enlarged upon in the exercise classes along with additional applied issues.

Exercise Sheets:

The exercise sheets are on Moodle.
