Book Description:

This engaging textbook introduces the key ideas behind drawing formal inferences from data. Aimed at advanced undergraduates and graduate students in mathematics and related disciplines, it is a concise account of the main approaches to inference, with particular emphasis on the contrasts between them. It is the first textbook to synthesize contemporary material on computational topics with basic mathematical theory.
