The ε-δ Arguments

  • Jiming JiangEmail author
Part of the Springer Texts in Statistics book series (STS, volume 0)


Every subject has its A, B, and C. The A-B-C for large-sample techniques is ε, δ, and a line of arguments. For the most part, this line of arguments tells how large the sample size, n, has to be in order to achieve an arbitrary accuracy that is characterized by ε and δ. It should be pointed out that, sometimes, the arguments may involve no δ (ε), or more than one δ (ε), but the basic lines of the arguments are all similar.
