3 credit hours
Prerequisites: Stat 401, or Stat 328 (basic concepts of statistical analysis through multiple linear regression).
Description: Advanced modern methods for analyzing experimental and observational data. Methods to be covered include graphical methods for high-dimensional data, maximum likelihood estimation, analysis of censored time-to-event data, nonlinear regression with random parameters, logistic regression, bootstrap and other simulation-based inference methods. The course will focus on data analysis, modeling, and interpretation, using examples from a variety of scientific and engineering disciplines.

Files are given in pdf format. Although it seems that they can be viewed on-line without any problems using Adobe's (free) Acrobat Reader program, we have had some problems in printing pdfs with certain file/platform/printer combinations (especially with Adobe Reader 3.0 on Vincent in documents with math symbols). Experiment with a single page to protect against making mistakes.
