In the upcoming trimester (Herbstrimester 2016), Prof. Hee-Young Kim (Department of Applied Statistics, Korea University, Sejong, South Korea), visiting professor at the Chair of Quantitative Methods in Economics (Prof. Christian Weiß), will hold a lecture on nonparametric statistical methods. Although this lecture is directed at students in the first place, scientific staff is nevertheless, within the framework of the “HSU-Doktorandenweiterbildung”, cordially invited to attend. Among the issues being addressed are:

  • Nonparametric statistical methods for dichotomous data,
  • for one-sample and two-sample location problems,
  • for two-sample dispersion problems and other two-sample problems,
  • for location problems under a one-way or two-way layout,
  • for analyzing the cross-dependence of bivariate data,
  • and for regression analysis.

The lecture will be held in English; dates and places will be announced in due course. The lecture concludes with an optional oral assessment for which, if requested, 6 credit points can be awarded (in accordance with the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System).
