Statistics Seminars: Analysis of distance for structured multivariate data

Presented by Wojtek J. Krzanowski (University of Exeter),

3 March 2006 14:00 in CM107

"Many multivariate data sets have a structure that suggests MANOVA, but that do not satisfy the necessary assumptions for such analysis. Interest has recently focused on a parallel type of analysis, but conducted on dissimilarity matrices obtained from the raw data. This talk will review the basis of such an approach, outline the main steps in the analysis, and show how biplots and sensitivity analysis can be added to the basic method. An ecological data set will be used as a running example to illustrate the methods. "
