Statistical Modeling of Temporal Data




Statistical methods for estimating functional relationships between time-dependent variables will be presented.  These methods are of particular interest when observations across time are available on the variables, but for which there is no concrete theory to suggest a specific functional relationship between those variables.  If time permits, we will apply some more recently developed methods to some environmental data and interpret those results.




Refreshments served in our faculty lounge at 3:30 p.m.
