Course Description:

R and R+ offer a large choice of facilities for classical and modern
approaches to statistical modelling. Dr Bill Venables will present R as
a complete data analysis and graphics environment and will focus on R
programming strategies for handling standard and non-standard
statistical modelling problems with the following outline:

- Statistical modelling in R: Modelling strategies, purposes, R tool and
operating paradigms
- Trellis graphics for data presentation and inspection.  
- Classical linear models: regression and analysis of variance, 
- Model fitting - choice of variables, use of the AIC and competitor
criteria for model selection, stepwise methods and their hazards
- Diagnostics and transformations.  
- Robust and resistant methods.  
- Generalized linear modelling, Logistics regression, Log-linear models,
Negative binomial and Multinomial models.  
- Classical and bootstrap methods for confidence intervals. Bayesian
- Non-linear and smooth regression: Least squares non-linear regression,
model, fitting and diagnostics. Alternative algorithms.  
- Penalized likelihood methods: Additive and generalized additive
models: fitting, display and prediction. ACE and AVAS exploratory
- Linear mixed effects models. Model fitting and diagnostic inspection.
Estimation and prediction.  
- Generalized linear mixed effects models: fitting procedures and
diagnostic checking.  
- Non-linear mixed effects models. Fitting procedures and key examples. 

- Generalized estimating equations (GEE) methods .  
- Tree-based models for regression and classification. Implementation
with tree and rpart fitting functions. Pruning and model selection by
- Bootstrap aggregation and prediction.  
- Classification: linear and quadratic discriminant analysis, Projection
pursuit regression. 
- Neural netorkds for classification with extended examples.  
- Hands-on Examples.
