Latest News...

13/1  Final decision about the allowed aids

Although you can read about the allowed aids below that I talked about earlier, please forget about that, since the following will be allowed on all the exams this semester.

You are allowed: a calculator and the textbook, Johnson/Wichern: Applied Multivariate Statistical Analysis. It is also allowed to have a copy of the textbook. Further you are are allowed to write notes in the book or in your copy of the book.

13/1  Stop for laborations from today

As you all know I will start working in Örebro very soon, so I must finish with your laborations. Therefore I will not correct any further laborations you will send me from the date this message was published.

I am correcting the ones that I have already received and hope to finish this soon. You will all get a report from me by e-mail about your performance on the labs.

7/12  Exams

I will demonstrate how to solve the exam given on March 16 2012 on Wednesday.

3/12  Allowed aids on the exam

As you can see on the earlier exams, the students were allowed to bring the entire textbook along. But I have decided that you can only bring a "formula sheet" that you write yourself. You can write on both sides of an A4 paper, by hand or using a computer.

Beside the formula sheet, you can bring a calculator.

3/12  Exams

I have found six exams that has been given before, but unfortunately without any solutions. I will solve one of them the next time we meet, but at the time of writing I haven't decided which one of them. I will let you know later, on this page.

The exams are 2011-03-26, 2011-06-03, 2011-08-18, 2012-03-16, 2013-12-18, 2015-01-09.

3/12  Computer laboration 4

The instruction can be found here. There is no data this time, we are given a sample covariance matrix calculated from table 36.1 in Andrews/Herzberg. This is a well-known collection of datasets.

25/11  All exercises in the new edition has the "correct" numbers

I have checked all the exercises that we should do from next week and they have all the right number that I wrote on the homepage.

17/11  Computer laboration 2

I have made computer lab 2 available on the course information page.

Although I didn't talk about MANOVA today, you can still attempt exercise 6.24. I will bear in mind your situation when I correct your laborations.

11/11  New numbers for the exercises in the new edition

I have put the new number of a certain exercise in parantheses right beside the original number. That is, if you read

2.5 (3.5),
this means that the old number was 2.5, but in the international edition it is 3.5.

The list is not complete yet. But chapters 4-6 seems to be exactly the same, so all numberings are correct there.

10/11  The bonus program is (also) abandoned

I think that we are too many in this course now for having the bonus program in the way that I talked about when we meet the first time.

Instead I will solve the exercises on the blackboard and I will give you some other exercises that you should be able to solve when you have seen me do a similar problem. Which problems that I will appoint for this reason you will know after class tomorrow.

Therefore the seminars are not mandatory anymore, but for the written examination later on in the course, it is probably good to take part in this activity.

2/11  Abandoning LISAM and material for computer lab 1

I have learned how to make accessible files on the homepage, so therefore we don't need LISAM anymore. I will instead make everything downloadable from here. Here is the instruction for the first computer laboration. The data is found here.

2015‑10‑19  Course start

Welcome to the course! The first meeting will take place on Tuesday 27 October at 13:15 in D24.
