- Course objectives
- The course objectives are to improve knowledge and practical skills of the students about multivariate data analysis. During the course, the students will learn methods for visualization of multivariate data, the mathematical background of multivariate methods for analysis of such data, and they will also practice interpretation of acquired results.
- Learning outcomes
- After the course, the students will be able to:
- Describe and visualize multivariate data;
- Use multivariate statistical tests correctly;
- Choose appropriate distance or similarity metrics;
- Calculate and visualize association matrices;
- Select and apply relevant clustering methods;
- Apply ordination methods on multivariate data;
- Interpret results obtained by multivariate analyses.
- 1. Description and visualization of multivariate data
- 2. Multivariate statistical tests: multivariate t-test; multivariate analysis of variance
- 3. Distance and similarity metrics in multidimensional space and their calculation
- 4. Association matrix, its calculation and use
- 5. Cluster analysis and its application in analysis of multivariate data
- 6. Ordination methods – principal component analysis (PCA)
- 7. Ordination methods – correspondence analysis (CA), multidimensional scaling (MDS)
