Abstract

Optimization techniques perform an important role in different domains of statistic. Examples of parameter estimation of different distributions, correlation analysis (parametric and nonparametric), regression analysis, optimal allocation of resources in partial research, exploration of response surfaces, design of experiments, efficiency tests, reliability theory, survival analysis are the most known methods of statistical analysis in which we find optimization techniques.

The paper contains a synthetic presentation of the main statistical methods using classical optimization techniques, numerical optimization methods, linear and nonlinear programming, variational calculus techniques. Also, an example of applying the “simplex” algorithm in making a decision to invest an amount on the stock exchange, using a prediction model..
