|GATE Eligibility||GATE Syllabus||GATE Preparation Tips|
Below given is a detailed syllabus of the GATE 2020 statics paper with all the main sections and core subjects.
GATE 2020 Statistics aspirants should prepare calculus as it is one of the vast and important topics comprising of many theorems, derivatives, and series, etc.
Countable and uncountable sets
Real number system as a complete ordered field
Sequences and series
Line integrals and Surface integrals
Gauss divergence theorem
Functions of two or three variables
Maxima and Minima
Method of Lagrange’s Multipliers
Double and Triple integrals and their applications
The questions from linear algebra may be tricky and difficult to solve but the GATE aspirant should prepare the syllabus to ace the exam.
Finite-dimensional vector spaces over real or complex fields.
Linear transformations and their matrix representations
Systems of linear equations
Eigenvalues and eigenvectors
Gram- Schmidt Orthonormalization process
Orthogonal and Unitary Matrices
Jordan Canonical Form
Hermitian skew- Hermitian
Finite-dimensional inner product spaces
Probability consists of means, variables, functions, distributions, etc. below given is the detailed topic with the subtopics.
Classical relative frequency and axiomatic definitions of probability
Random variables and probability distributions
moments and moment generating functions
Transformations of random variables
Distribution of order statistics and range
Random variables with the existence of higher-order moments.
Standard discrete and continuous univariate distributions
Probability inequalities (Chebyshev, Markov, Jensen)
Function of a random variable;
Jointly distributed random variable
Marginal and conditional distributions
Joint moment generating functions
Independence of random variables
Modes of convergence
Weak and strong laws of large numbers
Central limit theorem for i.i.d.
GATE 2020 consists of study with the random process of time and random variables. The question paper is set in a tricky manner.
Markov chains with finite and countable state space
Limiting behavior of n-step transition probabilities
Classification of states
Poisson and birth-and-death processes.
Inference comprises of mostly Rules and Modus of inference. However, the GATE aspirant should be aware of the time and solve the questions in time.
uniformly minimum variance unbiased estimation
Method of moments and maximum likelihood estimations
Tests of hypotheses
large sample test,
Wilcoxon signed-rank test,
Mann-Whitney U test,
Test for independence and Chi-square test for goodness of fit.
Most powerful and uniformly most powerful tests, likelihood ratio tests
Regression, polynomial and linear regression is a time taking topics. GATE aspirants must prepare for Regression analysis to qualify for the GATE exam.
Simple and multiple linear regression
Confidence intervals and testing for the regression coefficient
Partial and multiple correlation coefficients.
Multivariate Analysis consists of a Machine Learning Algorithm and is considered to be one of the easiest programming languages. GATE aspirants must score well in this topic if they have prepared all the topics.
Basic properties of the multivariate normal distribution
Hotelling's T2 and related tests;
Principal component analysis;
Discriminant analysis; Clustering.
Design of Experiment mainly focuses on the relationship between the output of the product and the factors affecting it. The candidate should use their practical knowledge to qualify for the exam.
|One and two-way ANOV||A, CRD, RBD, LSD, 2 power 2 and 2 power 3 Factorial experiments.|
