TITLE: Hypothesis testing and p-value
Hypothesis testing is one of the most fundamental topics in statistics. In this talk, I will discuss hypothesis testing in the following aspects:
i) Formulating and testing hypothesis in general, along with important concepts including Type I and Type II errors, p-values, etc.
ii) Two approaches to implementing hypothesis testing: critical value approach and p-value approach.
iii) An illustrated example: one-sample t-test.
Pizza and Soda will be served at the talk
