### STAT Courses

- STAT 837P - Computer Analysis of Statistical Data - 3 hours
- Prereq: one introductory statistics course and one computer science course

The analysis of data taken from the social sciences. The computer will be a tool for the course.
- STAT 840 - Stochastic Modeling - 3 hours
- Prereq: MATH 305* and MATH 440* and STAT 441*

Methods quantifying the dynamic relationships of sequences of random events. Methods studied include Markov chains, Poisson
processes, renewal, branching, and queuing, and their applications.
- STAT 841P - Probability and Statistics - 3 hours
- Prereq: MATH 260*

Elementary probability theory and statistical applications.
- STAT 842P - Mathematical Statistics - 3 hours
- Prereq: STAT 441* and permission of instructor

A continuation of STAT 441/STAT 841P. The further mathematical development of special probability
densities, functions of random variables, sampling distributions, decision theory, point and interval estimators, hypotheses
testing, and covariance.
- STAT 881 - Statistical Inference I - 3 hours
- Prereq: STAT 441* or STAT 841P* or equivalent

A continuation of STAT 441/STAT 841P. The further development of probability and distributions,
multivariate distributions, some special distributions, and limiting distributions.
- STAT 882 - Statistical Inference II - 3 hours
- Prereq: STAT 881* or equivalent

A continuation of STAT 881. The further development of statistical inference, maximum likelihood method,
sufficiency, optimal test of hypothesis, noncentral chi-square, multiple comparisons, regression problem, and test of
independence.
- STAT 895P - Independent Study in Statistics - 1-3 hours
- Prereq: permission of instructor

Individual studies and research under the guidance of a faculty member. May be taken twice for two separate studies.

* This course is the immediate prerequisite. Other preparation is required prior to this immediate prerequisite.
