The objective of this course is to extend our understanding of the
standard linear model based approaches. We will make extensive use of
matrix algebra. You will therefore need to become comfortable working
with matrices. We will also examine the theory behind these
methods. You will therefore need to become comfortable with the
distributions of linear and quadratic forms. Because this course does
not exist in a vacuum, you will need to be able to relate the theory
to the application and the application to the theory.
