Statistics & Applied Math CORE

Welcome to Statistics and Applied mathematics CORE (SAMC) at the Department of Mathematical Sciences.

The CORE is designed to help researchers at the University of Montana and wider community of Missoula and the State of Montana with the data analysis, modeling and optimization needs. 

Focus Areas

  • Analysis of data from biology (including human health and human performance)
  • Analysis of environmental data (including ecology, remote sensing, climatology, and wild land fire)
  • Design of experiments
  • Generalized linear mixed models (including logistic regression, generalized linear models, linear mixed models, repeated measurement data, and pseudo-replication problems)
  • Multivariate methods (including dimension reduction, principal components analysis, and analysis of microarray data)
  • Statistical Learning (principally prediction and classification problems, and analysis high dimensional data)
  • Construction and analysis of dynamical continuous time and discrete time models in biology, ecology, molecular biology, neuroscience, chemical kinetics, and other disciplines (including spatially dependent models)
  • Identification of dynamic models' parameters from experimental data and construction of statistically reliable model predictions
