Advanced Linear Models for Data Science 2: Statistical Linear Models (Coursera)
Welcome to the Advanced Linear Models for Data Science Class 2: Statistical Linear Models. This class is an introduction to least squares from a linear algebraic and mathematical perspective. Before beginning the class make sure that you have the following: a basic understanding of linear algebra and multivariate calculus; a basic understanding of statistics and regression models; at least a little familiarity with proof based mathematics; basic knowledge of the R programming language.

Syllabus


WEEK 1

Introduction and expected values

In this module, we cover the basics of the course as well as the prerequisites. We then cover the basics of expected values for multivariate vectors. We conclude with the moment properties of the ordinary least squares estimates.


WEEK 2

The multivariate normal distribution

In this module, we build up the multivariate and singular normal distribution by starting with iid normals.


WEEK 3

Distributional results

In this module, we build the basic distributional results that we see in multivariable regression.


WEEK 4

Residuals

In this module we will revisit residuals and consider their distributional results. We also consider the so-called PRESS residuals and show how they can be calculated without re-fitting the model.
