C S 391D C S 391D. Data Mining: A Mathematical Perspective. 3 Hours.
Mathematical and statistical aspects of data mining. Topics include supervised learning (regression, classification, support vector machines) and unsupervised learning (clustering, principal components analysis, dimensionality reduction). Uses technical tools that draw from linear algebra, multivariate statistics, and optimization. Three lecture hours a week for one semester. Computer Science 391D and 395T (Topic: Data Mining: A Statistical Learning Perspective) may not both be counted. Prerequisite: Graduate standing, and Mathematics 341 or the equivalent.
