Module content and teaching

Principal aims

To develop more advanced probabilistic methods that are used in Statistics.

Principal learning outcomes

Understand more advanced notions of probability needed in mathematical statistics including properties of multivariate Gaussian distributions, the law of large numbers, and the central limit theorem. Be able to calculate probabilities and expected values in more complex and sometimes multidimensional contexts. To be able to manipulate mathematical statements regarding the limit behaviour of random sequences.
