Title: Sparse Canonical Correlation Analysis Abstract: Canonical correlation analysis (CCA) is a widely used multivariate statistical technique for exploring the relation between two sets of variables. In this talk we consider the problem of estimating the leading canonical correlation directions in high dimensional settings. Recently, under the assumption that the leading canonical correlation directions are sparse, various procedures have been proposed for many high dimensional applications involving massive data sets. However, there has been few theoretical justification available in the... Read more about CMSA Talk: Zongming Ma

Modeling Ordinal Categorical Data (Day 2) Harvard Catalyst Biostatistics Seminar This short course surveys methods for modeling categorical response variables that have a natural ordering of the categories. Such data often occur in the social sciences (e.g., for measuring attitudes and opinions) and in medical and public health disciplines (e.g., pain, quality of life, severity of a condition). Topics to be covered include logistic regression models using cumulative logits with proportional odds structure, non-proportional odds models, other ordinal logistic regression models such as using...
