Computational statistics methods are required when analyzing complex data structures. In this course you will learn the basics of recent computational statistics methods such as Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) methods, EM algorithm and the bootstrap. Emphasis will be given to basic theory and applications. In particular the following topics will be covered: Random variable generation: discrete, continuous, univariate, multivariate, resampling. Bayesian inference: posterior distribution, hierarchical models, Markov chains, stationary and limiting distributions, Markov Chain Monte Carlo Methods (MCMC): Gibbs sampling, Metropolis-Hastings algorithm, implementation, convergence diagnostics, software for MCMC, Model adequacy and model choice. EM Algorithm: Theory, EM in exponential family, computation of standard errors. Bootstrap and Jacknife methods: empirical distribution and plug-in, bootstrap estimate of standard errors, jacknife and relationship to bootstrap, confidence intervals based on bootstrap percentiles and extensions.
MA1401 Introduction to Probability, MA2402 Basic Statistics, MA2404 Markov Chains, Softwarekenntnisse in R
