Stat 399: Transposable data, Professor Art Owen

This web page is a repository for handouts for Stat 399. (taught Spring 1999/2000)

This course looks into statistical problems raised by search engines, recommender systems, and DNA microarrays. The common element in these problems is that the data are given as a matrix with two equally valid interpretations: rows=observations, columns=variables, and vice versa.

We meet Wednesday at 3:15 in Sequoia Hall 200.
