Page last updated: Nov. 22, 2005 Lecture 1: Statistical Principles I: Estimation (handwritten notes). Lecture 2: Statistical Principles II: Uncertainty assessment and hypothesis testing (slides - pdf: fullsize, reduced, ps: fullsize, reduced ). Lecture 3: Nice things about R (slides - pdf: fullsize, reduced, ps: fullsize, reduced ), and three example tasks (slides - pdf: fullsize, reduced, ps: fullsize, reduced ). Lecture 4: Linear models, Part I (slides - pdf: fullsize, reduced, ps: fullsize, reduced ). Lecture 5: Linear models, Part II: handwritten slides on regression diagnostics. Lecture 6: Logistic regression (slides - pdf: fullsize, reduced, ps: fullsize, reduced ). Lecture 7: Generalized linear models I (slides - pdf: fullsize, reduced, ps: fullsize, reduced ). Lecture 8: Generalized linear models II - Overdispersion (slides - pdf: fullsize, reduced, ps: fullsize, reduced ). Lecture 9: Generalized linear models III - Log-linear modelling (slides - pdf: fullsize, reduced, ps: fullsize, reduced ). We lapped ourselves. It took us 10 classes to cover lectures 1 through 9. Hence there is no lecture 10. Lecture 11: The bootstrap (slides - pdf: fullsize, reduced, ps: fullsize, reduced ). Also, here is R code for examples one, two, and three. Lecture 12: Model Choice (slides - pdf: fullsize, reduced, ps: fullsize, reduced ). Lecture 13: More Model Choice (slides - pdf: fullsize, reduced, ps: fullsize, reduced ). Also, R code for the stepwise and cross-validation examples. Lapped ourselves again - 4 classes to cover lectures 11 through 13 - Hence there is no lecture 14. Lecture 15: Nonlinear Regression (slides - pdf: fullsize, reduced, ps: fullsize, reduced ). Lecture 16: Expectation-Maximization (EM) Algorithm (slides - pdf: fullsize, reduced, ps: fullsize, reduced ). Lecture 17: Simulation Studies (slides - pdf: fullsize, reduced, ps: fullsize, reduced ). Lecture 18: Handwritten notes on hierarchical models (otherwise known as random-effect models, mixed models, or random coefficient models). Lecture 19: More on hierarchical models, including the Sitka data ex.: (slides - pdf: fullsize, reduced, ps: fullsize, reduced ). Lecture 20: Curve-fitting. No pre-fab slides, but some pictures ( pdf, or ps), and a bit of code. Lecture 21: Move from curve-fitting to additive models, with this example: (slides - pdf: fullsize, reduced, ps: fullsize, reduced ). Lecture 22: We didn't really get started on additive models last time, so that discussion carrys over. We may also start talking about "tree models" if time permits. Lecture 23: Tree models. Here are the examples. ( pdf: fullsize, reduced, ps: fullsize, reduced ). [ Return to P. Gustafson's Home Page ] Statistics:  Faculty Index || People Index || Statistics Home Page
