Page history last edited by mike@mbowles.com 10 years, 1 month ago

The material for the first lecture comes from "Elements of Statistical Learning" chapters 2 and 3.  We're also using professor Robert Tibshirani's lecture notes for stats 315a.  Here's a link to Professor Tibshirani's web page for those slides.  http://www-stat.stanford.edu/~tibs/stat315a.html "Overview of Supervised Learning" through "Least angle regression and the lasso" 


The r-scripts for the examples covered in the lecture are on this web site.
