Course objectives
The course offers a coverage of selected advanced regression methods and models beyond linear and generalized linear regression. The couse covers theoretical foundations, statistical models and inference, software implementation, application and interpretation.
Learning outcomes
The students will gain a deeper understanding of the methods and their relations and learn to recognize situations that can be addressed by the models discussed in the course, choose an appropriate model, implement it and interpret the results.
