Title:  Applied Linear Stat Methods

Instructor(s): Rina Foygel Barber

Teaching Assistant(s): Joonsuk Kang, Wei Kuang, and Yonghoon Lee

Class Schedule: Sec 1: MW 1:30 PM-2:50 PM in E133

Description: This course introduces the theory, methods, and applications of fitting and interpreting multiple regression models. Topics include the examination of residuals, the transformation of data, strategies and criteria for the selection of a regression equation, nonlinear models, biases due to excluded variables and measurement error, and the use and interpretation of computer package regression programs. The theoretical basis of the methods, the relation to linear algebra, and the effects of violations of assumptions are studied. Techniques discussed are illustrated by examples involving both physical and social sciences data.
