Description and Goals

This course will focus on the theory and application of generalized linear models and related topics. The core material covered will be in Chapters 3-9 of Dobson and Barnett. Questions on this material appear on the PhD qualifying exam. Advanced topics including generalized linear mixed models, marginalized models, generalized estimating equations, generalized additive models, penalized regression, and missing covariates will be covered if time permits.


There will be several assignments handed out during the semester. Assignments will be due at the beginning of class on the due date. Late assignments will not be accepted. Your homework grade will be based on both completing the assignment and my grading of selected problems.
