Scope of the course:
Situations in which the objects being studied are measured repeatedly, at a series of successive points in time, arise in many application areas including medicine, psychology and engineering. They present challenging problems for analysis, because the observations are not independent, and suitable models must be found to reflect this. Recent years have witnessed the development of powerful new approaches for handling such data, and the aim of this course is to cover those developments. Topics to be covered include linear models for continuous processes, generalized linear models for discrete/non-Gaussian processes missing values, nonparametric methods and crossover trials. Emphasis is on the situation where several objects are measured at relatively few times, rather than a single object at many times.
