Introduction to Bayesian hierarchical modelling using R (IBHM04) FREE ACCOMMODATION AVAILABLE

23 March 2020 - 27 March 2020
PS statistics head office, 53 Morrison Street
Glasgow, Scotland, G5 8LB United Kingdom

Course Overview: This course will cover introductory hierarchical modelling for real-world data sets from a Bayesian perspective. These methods lie at the forefront of statistics research and are a vital tool in the scientist’s toolbox. The course focuses on introducing concepts and demonstrating good practice in hierarchical models. All methods are demonstrated with data sets which participants can run themselves. Participants will be taught how to fit hierarchical models using the Bayesian modelling software Jags and Stan through the R…

Generalised Linear (MIXED) (GLMM), Nonlinear (NLGLM) And General Additive Models (MIXED) (GAMM) (GNAM01)

25 May 2020 - 29 May 2020
PS statistics head office, 53 Morrison Street
Glasgow, Scotland, G5 8LB United Kingdom

Course Overview: This course provides a general introduction to nonlinear regression analysis, covering major topics including, but not limited to, general and generalized linear models, generalized additive models, spline and radial basis function regression, and Gaussian process regression. We approach the general topic of nonlinear regression by showing how the powerful and flexible statistical modelling framework of general and generalized linear models, and their multilevel counterparts, can be extended to handle nonlinear relationships between predictor and outcome variables. We begin…
