Math 6010-1, University of Utah, Fall 2014
Linear Models: Course Syllabus

Instructor: Davar Khoshnevisan (Contact Information | Office Hours)
Time/Place: MWF 12:55-13:45, JWB 333.
Text: Linear Regression Analysis, G.A.F. Seber and J. Lee, Wiley, New York, Second edition, 2003.
Course Description: This is the first term in a year-long sequence on linear models. This course assumes a solid knowledge of Calculus (I, II, III), linear algebra (Math. 2270), probability theory (Math. 5010), and mathematical statistics (Math. 5080-5090). Topics include:
  • Linear algebra primer;
  • general linear models;
  • regression;
  • analysis of variance.
Grading: Weekly assignments; two midterms, and several projects. The weekly assignments mostly involve theoretical problems. Solutions are posted after the due dates. The projects are applied problems.

The midterms will be on Sept 26th (midterm 1) and Nov 14th (midterm 2). There are no makeup tests, so you need to ensure that you are on campus at those time in order to take them.

Lecture notes: These are my lectures notes, written to myself. Feel free to use them if you wish, but they are likely to be rough around the edges. So read carefully.

Module 10: Confidence Intervals and Confidence Sets

Midterm 2 is based on the material of Modules 7-9
Module 9: Hypothesis Testing
Module 8: Assessing Normality
Module 7: Linear Models

Modules 1-6 form the mathematical basis of this course; the material for Midterm 1 is on these modules
Module 6: Gaussian Random Vectors
Module 5: Moment Generating Functions and Independence
Module 4: Quadratic Forms
Module 3: Some Linear Algebra
Module 2: Random Vectors
Module 1: Introduction
