About this book

The aim of this graduate textbook is to provide a comprehensive advanced course in the theory of statistics covering those topics in estimation, testing, and large sample theory which a graduate student might typically need to learn as preparation for work on a Ph.D. An important strength of this book is that it provides a mathematically rigorous and even-handed account of both Classical and Bayesian inference in order to give readers a broad perspective. For example, the "uniformly most powerful" approach to testing is contrasted with available decision-theoretic approaches.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"Another excellent book in theory of statistics is by Mark J. Schervish. … Readers will enjoy reading this book to see how differently the theory can be presented … . This well written book contains nine chapters and four appendices. ... Each chapter has both easy and challenging problems. The book is suitable for graduate level statistical theory courses. Examples and illustrations are well explained. I liked the author’s presentation, and learned a lot from the book. I highly recommend this book to theoretical statisticians."
