Introduction to Functional Data Analysis (FDA)
This repository contains the HTML-slides
Intro2FDA.html of my short lecture Introduction to Functional Data Analysis at the 2nd Workshop on Statistics & Econometrics, Jul. 13, 2018, University of Passau (Germany). You can simply download them and view them using a (modern) browser with a MathJax plugin for rendering the LaTeX equations. The current versions of Chrome and Firefox should work directly.
All practical examples can be reproduced using the accompanying R-codes in
Intro2FDA.R. The latter file is generated by an automatic extraction of the R-codes contained in
Intro2FDA.html. The layout of the R-codes in
Intro2FDA.R is not perfect, due to the automatic extraction, but the content is complete.
The slides are mainly based on the great textbook Introduction to Functional Data Analysis of Piotr Kokoszka and Matthew Reimherr (two well-known experts in FDA):
- Chapter 1 First steps in the analysis of functional data (Sections 1.1-1.4)
- Chapter 3 Mathematical framework for functional data (Sections 3.1 and 3.2)
- Chapter 4 Scalar-on-function regression (Sections 4.1-4.7)
