Multidimensional data arise frequently in many fields of scientific research, from engineering, computer science, finance, medicine, to social sciences. Multivariate statistics provide powerful and flexible tools to extract meaningful information from these data.
This course provides an introduction to various classical statistical methods for analyzing multivariate data, including multivariate extensions of univariate techniques and other tools that are specific for multidimensional data. Students will gain a conceptual understanding and the mathematical underpinnings of the procedures, and be able to applied these to datasets using R.
Lecture notes will be provided during the course.
