- Timetable of Seminar Groups:

**Prerequisites**-
**M7222**Generalized linear models

Calculus, linear algebra, basics of probability theory and mathematical statistics, theory of estimation and hypotheses testing, linear and generalized linear models, basic methods of time series analysis, knowledge of R software **Course Enrolment Limitations**- The course is also offered to the students of the fields other than those the course is directly associated with.
**fields of study / plans the course is directly associated with**- Statistics and Data Analysis (programme PřF, N-MA)

**Course objectives**- The course offers a coverage of selected advanced regression methods and models beyond linear and generalized linear regression. The couse covers theoretical foundations, statistical models and inference, software implementation, application and interpretation.
**Learning outcomes**- The students will gain a deeper understanding of the methods and their relations and learn to recognize situations that can be addressed by the models discussed in the course, choose an appropriate model, implement it and interpret the results.
**Syllabus**- Nonlinear parametric regression models
- Regression with correlated data, generalized least squares, generalized estimating equations
- Model selection, regularization techniques
- Regression models in survival analysis
