In this document you find an overview over the relevant topics for the examination (Prüfungsstoff). In the exam, the densities and the moments of the relevant distributions will typically be given. The use of pocket calculators or individual written aids at the exam is not allowed.

Exercise classes are every week starting on September 24, 2019.
Series and solutions
We do not correct exercise series. Only exception: PhD students who need ETH credit points.
PhD students who only need the ETH credit points have to hand in solutions to at least 8 problem sheets. PhD students who need ECTS points do not have to hand in solutions but have to pass the exam (an online registration on mystudies is required).
The solved exercise sheet should be handed in by 12.15PM of the designated date. You can submit your solutions to the assistants during the exercise class or by placing them in the Fundamentals of Mathematical Statistics box in room HG J 68.
Submitted solutions that were not recollected will be placed in HG J 68.
