Welcome to a Little Book of R for Multivariate Analysis! — Multivariate Analysis documentationSkip to main content Multivariate Analysis. Methods of Multivariate Analysis. Only 7 left in stock more on the way. I had this book as a textbook for a graduate level multivariate analysis course for environmental science. It's a comprehensive introduction that is clear and fairly concise. I find myself using it as reference all the time. Add to cart.

I am writing to ask you for a recommendation of something I can read to catch up on multivariate statistics. I am happy with random processes and linear algebra since they are important in population genetics. My last encounter with real statistics was several decades ago. Recently I have had to dip my toes into real multivariate statistics again and I am completely lost. You can jump straight to the chapters on multilevel modeling. If the question is about traditional multivariate methods such as factor analysis, principal components, etc.
Multivariate analysis is what people called many machine learning techniques before calling it machine learning became so lucrative. Traditional multivariate analysis emphasizes theory concerning the multivariate normal distribution, techniques based on the multivariate normal distribution, and techniques that don't require a distributional assumption, but had better work well for the multivariate normal distribution, such as: multivariate regression, classification, principal component analysis, ANOVA, ANCOVA, correspondence analysis, density estimation, etc. This book tries to cover a lot of ground. The subtitle Regression, Classification, and Manifold Learning spells out the foci of the book hypothesis testing is rather neglected. Izenman covers the classical techniques for these three tasks, such as multivariate regression, discriminant analysis, and principal component analysis, as well as many modern techniques, such as artificial neural networks, gradient boosting, and self-organizing maps. Obviously he cannot describe each topic in exhaustive detail, but he delivers the main applied points, and he'll get you interested enough to look for resources dedicated to each topic. This is an outstanding practitioner's guide to classical multivariate analysis.

Statistics came well before computers. It would be very different if it were the other way around. The stats most people learn in high school or college come from the time when computations were done with pen and paper. There are better options. Tibsharani is a coauthor of both. You can download them for free. The field of machine learning is all about feeding huge amounts of data into algorithms to make accurate predictions.
