In the future it will be offered as Stats 560--Introduction to Mathematical Statistics (3) Probability, probability distributions, simulation of random variables, sampling distributions, central limit theorem, testing of hypotheses, confidence intervals, maximum likelihood methods, Bayesian methods.
It is offered both on campus and through distance. For details, visit http://anywhere.tennessee.edu/de/courselist/CourseDetails.asp?CourseID=1636
This class was developed to provide the statistical foundation for reliability engineering courses. It has no course prerequisite, an engineering foundation will suffice.
