Statistical Modeling of Spatial and Time Series Data
Introduction to Bayesian modeling for data with spatial and/or time dependence. Exploratory analysis of spatial (point referenced and areal) and time series data. Gaussian processes and generalizations. Extending hierarchical Bayesian linear models and generalized linear models. Spatial models: CAR, SAR, kriging and time series models: ARM, ARMA, dynamic linear models. Computational methods for model fitting and diagnostics. Prerequisite: STA360, STA601 or equivalent. One course.
