linear model. Properties and geometry of least-squares estimation.
General linear hypothesis, confidence regions and intervals.
Multicollinearity. Relationship between ANOVA models and linear models.
Residual analysis, outliers, partial and added variable plots.
This course is intended for students who need a solid knowledge of
regression analysis. The emphasis, in contrast to MATH3330.30, will be
mathematical development of linear models including modern regression
Students will use the computer for some exercises, but no previous
courses in computing are required. The statistical software package
SPLUS in a UNIX environment will be used and instructions will be
given in class.
The text is R.H. Myers, Classical and Modern Regression with
The final grade will be based on a combination of assignments,
midterm tests and a final examination.
