Write, Edit, Repeat!

SMU Adventures Originally Posted: March 20, 2017 Associate Professor of Political Science Joe Kobylka and the students in his Honors Program class “The Supreme Court Seminar” are spending six days in the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C., doing research in the papers of former Supreme Court Justices. Each student has developed a unique research topic, question, and design, and will use the justices’ papers to find evidence to help answer the question and write a culminating original research paper. An update from Greg G., a sophomore majoring in statistical sciences, and minoring in computer science and history: For all of us on the trip, our ability to easily sift out information that’s unlikely to help us and picking out useful quotes, memos, and snippets [...]

Event 12/8: Statistics Tutorial: A Minimum Distance Approach

Event Date: 12/8/16 Location: The Forum, Hughes-Trigg Student Center Time: 12:30 - 2:00 p.m. with refreshments Join Dr. Cornelis Potgieter (Statistics) for a tutorial providing an overview of some of the tools often used in statistical analysis. These tools include methods of parameter estimation and statistical inference, methods which can often be formulated using a minimum distance framework. The notions of parametric and nonparametric statistics will be introduced and discussed in the context of this minimum distance framework. Several examples to illustrate the methods will be discussed. Link for more information: http://www.smu.edu/Dedman/DCII/Events
