The Simple and Infinite Joy of Mathematical Statistics, by J.N. Corcoran, is a classical introduction to mathematical statistics that has been written for a varied audience of graduate and undergraduate students with diverse backgrounds and skill sets. It has been in use in draft form for over 20 years in statistics departments where students may or may not have had advanced mathematical fluency, and in mathematics departments where students may or may not have had any statistical background. "Joy" has been written in a way that tries to bridge the divide between these groups of students. The text begins with an optional review of basic probability concepts, and then covers basic tools needed before diving into the world of estimation and inference. Topics include
  • convergence concepts for sequences of random variables
  • order statistics
  • maximum likelihood estimation with asymptotic properties
  • pivotal quantities and confidence intervals
  • method of moments estimation
  • sufficiency, completeness, and minimum variance unbiased estimation
  • uniformly most powerful hypothesis tests
  • generalized likelihood ratio tests and Wilks' Theorem
Lose the assumptions of normality and learn to develop your own statistical tests.
