Courselet on Multivariate Analysis

The study of learning from data is commercially and scientifically important. This one month short course is designed to give first year Ph.D. students a thorough grounding in the methodologies, technologies, mathematics and algorithms currently needed by people who do research in learning and data mining or who may need to apply learning or data mining techniques to a target problem. The topics of the course draw from classical statistics, from machine learning, from data mining, from Bayesian statistics and from statistical algorithmics.

Students entering the class should have a pre-existing working knowledge of probability, statistics and algorithms, though the class has been designed to allow students with a strong numerate background to catch up and fully participate.

Courselet on Optimization

Optimization methods, both linear and non-linear ones, are important mathematical techniques for computer science. This one month short course is designed to give first year Ph.D. students a thorough grounding in the methodologies, technologies, mathematics and algorithms currently needed by people who are doing research related to linear and non-linear optimization. The topics of the course draw mainly from linear programming, quadratic programming and nonlinear optimization.

Students entering the class should have a pre-existing working knowledge of fundamental mathematics and algorithms, though the class has been designed to allow students with a strong numerate background to catch up and fully participate.

Python

Python is a powerful but easy-to-use script language for daily software development. In this course, we mainly use it as a standard training tool to temper mathematical skills. Several useful links are listed as following for your reference.
