MASC02 Inference Theory, 2nd course

Mathematical Sciences
Lund University with Lund Institute of Technology 



Only parts of the material in the books will be covered. Both books are nevertheless recommended bying, as they are excellent reference litterature. Both books are available as E-books free of charge.

The background material is treated in Casella and Lehmann chapters 1.2-1.3; students that feel uncertain on whether they have sufficient backgroud should consult these pages. More detailed background information on measure theory and topology can be found here.
