9.520A Networks for Learning: Regression and Classification (MIT) The course focuses on the problem of supervised learning within the framework of Statistical Learning Theory. It starts with a review of classical statistical techniques, including Regularization Theory in RKHS for multivariate function approximation from sparse data. Next, VC theory is discussed in detail and used to justify classification and regression techniques such as Regularization Networks and Support Vector Machines. Selected topics such as boosting, feature selection and multiclass cla Author(s): Poggio, Tomaso,Verri, Alessandro
Mobility and school disruption This is a research report which uses statistical analysis of National Curriculum performance tests and information about pupil mobility in order to consider whether a child’s education is affected by turnover and disruption in the composition of their school cohort.
It uses test scores at age 11 and compares them to retrospective test scores from the same pupils at age 7, and then draws conclusions from the statistical analysis in relation to whether high pupil mobility is disadvantageous for Author(s): No creator set
Prices This unit looks at a wide variety of ways of comparing prices and the construction of a price index. You will also look at the Retail Price Index (RPI) and the Consumer Price Index (CPI), indices used by the UK Government to calculate the percentage by which prices in general have risen over any given period. You wil also look at the important statistical and mathematical ideas that contribute to the construction of a price index. Author(s): The Open University

Methods in Biostatistics I Presents fundamental concepts in applied probability, exploratory data analysis, and statistical inference, focusing on probability and analysis of one and two samples. Topics include discrete and continuous probability models; expectation and variance; central limit theorem; inference, including hypothesis testing and confidence for means, proportions, and counts; maximum likelihood estimation; sample size determinations; elementary nonparametric methods; graphical displays; and data transform Author(s): No creator set
8 Paired samples TTests Handling statistical data is an essential part of psychological research. However, many people find the idea of using statistics, and especially statistical software packages, extremely daunting. This unit takes a stepbystep approach to statistics software through seven interactive activities. No statistics software is needed. Author(s): The Open University
2.51 Intermediate Heat and Mass Transfer (MIT) Analysis, modeling, and design of heat and mass transfer processes with application to common technologies. Unsteady heat conduction in one or more dimensions, steady conduction in multidimensional configurations, numerical simulation; forced convection in laminar and turbulent flows; natural convection in internal and external configurations; phase change heat transfer; thermal radiation, black bodies, grey radiation networks, spectral and solar radiation; mass transfer at low rates, evaporatio Author(s): Lienhard, John H., 1961
HST.583 Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging: Data Acquisition and Analysis (MIT) This team taught, multidisciplinary course covers the fundamentals of magnetic resonance imaging relevant to the conduct and interpretation of human brain mapping studies. The challenges inherent in advancing our knowledge about brain function using fMRI are presented first to put the work in context. The course then provides in depth coverage of the physics of image formation, mechanisms of image contrast, and the physiological basis for image signals.
