Stat 571 Statistical Methods List of Topics This course follows the textbook Statistics and Data Analysis From Elementary to Intermediate by Ajit Tamhane and Dorothy Dunlop The chapters covered are l to 13 Chapter 2 on probability is only brie y covered The IMF software package is integrated with the course material The course transparencies and other course information are available in the course
