### Overview

Multivariate Statistics studies the joint distribution of two or more random variables.

Many procedures rely on the multivariate normal distribution. As in univariate statistics, differences between two or more groups of observations are examined (discriminant analysis), and effects of explanatory variables on several target variables are modeled (regression). In addition, there are methods for reducing dimension (principal component analysis, ordination) and formation of groups (cluster analysis).

The course gives an overview of problems and methods. A selection will be treated more in depth.
