Stat 970: Linear Models







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.
