Objectives and Content

This course gives an introduction to asymptotic methods in statistics. Types of convergence such as convergence in probability, convergence with probability one and convergence in distribution are discussed. A version of the law of large numbers and the Lindeberg central limit theorem are proved. The theory applied to maximum likelihood.

Learning Outcomes

The purpose of the course is to give the basics of asymptotic analysis in statistics and probability.
