Multivariate Data Analysis

  • Number of credits 7.5 Credits
  • Level Master’s level
  • Starting Autumn Term 2018

About the course

In most experimental situations one measures several dependent variables. When studying the variables one at a time, one usually does not get a complete picture of the experimental results. For this reason, in recent years, multivariate methods, in which the variables are studied simultaneously have become increasingly popular. This course covers both the underlying theory required to understand the multivariate methods, as well as their applications in data analysis. Some of the methods/models covered in the course are principal component analysis, factor analysis, discriminant analysis, multivariate analysis of variance (MANOVA), PLS, cluster analysis and multivariate analysis of repeated measurements. The course includes computer labs where multivariate data analysis is performed using statistical software.

In a degree, this course may not be included together with another course with a similar content. If unsure, students should ask the Director of Studies in Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics. The course can also be included in the subject area of computational science and engineering.
