MATH-651 Regression Methods and Generalized Linear Models
Fall for 2017-2018
This course will focus on the theory and application of regression methods for statistical modeling and data analysis. Emphasis will be in the following areas: simple and multiple regression, inference and prediction, model building and diagnostics, model selection and validation, analysis of variance (ANOVA), analysis of covariance (ANCOVA), generalized linear models, logistic and Poisson regression and other extensions as time permits (e.g. mixed models, nonlinear regression). Practical issues involved in implementation of these methods will be presented using statistical software packages SAS and R based on example problems from a wide range of applications.
