Date of Decision: 2018-03-21

## General Information

Elective for: B5-l, B5-mb, B5-lm, K5-m, K5-l, N4
Language of instruction: The course will be given in Swedish

## Aim

Build on the knowledge in design of experiments in order to be able to plan and perform more complicated experiments, as well as analyse data in several dimensions.

## Learning outcomes

Knowledge and understanding
For a passing grade the student must

• be able to explain and use basic methods in factorial design,
• be able to explain and use basic methods in cluster analysis, discriminant analysis, principal components, and partial least squares.

Competences and skills
For a passing grade the student must

• plan a factorial design experiment,
• suggest which multivariate statistical method should be used on a given problem,
• structure and analyse multi-dimensional data materials using computer software for multivariate methods, and critically assess the result,
• report the solutions of multivariate statistical problems in written reports and orally at seminars.

## Contents

Complete and reduced factorial designs. Response surface analysis. Cluster analysis, discriminant analysis, principal component analysis (PCA), and partial least squares (PLS).
