Linear Regression Analysis and Its Application


Course No.S070103ZJ004

Course CategoryProfessional Basic Course


PrerequisitesLinear Algebra, Mathematics Statistics.

Aims & Requirements

This course is the basic course for the masters and doctors of the major of mathematics statistics, and also can be used as a select course for the masters of the major of applied science. Linear model is an important branch of modern statistics. It has rich contents and has been widely used in the fields of biology, medical science, economy, management, agriculture, industry, technology and so on. This course includes relevant knowledge of matrix theory, multiply normal distribution and other relevant distributions, parameter estimation of linear model, hypothesis test, confidence regions and prediction, criteria for choice and diagnose of best model, Analysis of variance, Analysis of covariance. Having followed this course, students should master some basic methods and techniques and have general knowledge about the development of this subject for further study and work.
