Course overview

The focus in MATH5885 is on modelling response profiles over time, whilst accounting for the correlation that will typically exist between measurements taken on the same individual and the variability between individual response profiles. Therefore, MATH5885 brings together multivariate regression modelling, time series modelling and random effects modelling for continuous and discrete valued response measurements and aims to enhance a student's capacity to analyse and understand large, complex data sets. The main focus will be on application to biomedical studies such but the ideas have a wider application, for example, to panel studies that arise in market research and social surveys.
