Multivariate analysis is in principle a collection of methods designed to elicit information from multivariate data and to answer different statistical questions of interest.
In particular, students will
- get to know different (parametric and nonparametric) statistical models which are most popular for describing multivariate data in practice and will
- be familiar with the corresponding inference procedures as hypothesis tests (e.g. Wilk's Lambda) and confidence ellipsoids,
- learn about specific classification and grouping methods and their properties and
- be able to apply their knowledge to real data.
- Finally, if there is enough time left, we will also treat modern statistical learning techniques for (multivariate) classification and prediction problems.
- Data visualization. How to present multivariate data?
- Hypothesis construction and testing; e.g. likelihood-ratio-tests and nonparametric tests
- Confidence ellipsoids
- Dimension reduction or structural simplification and their limitations
- Investigation of dependence among variables
- Bootstrap for multivariate data
- Classification and Prediction
The exercise sheets are on Moodle.
