Welcome to the material for the first term of the module Advanced Statistical Modelling MATH3411 at Durham University. These pages will update as the course progresses, consisting of relevant lecture notes, practical demonstrations (in R), exercise sheets and practical sessions.

I would recommend that you use the html version of these notes (they have been designed for use in this way), however, there is also a pdf version of these notes, which will also be updated as the course progresses.

If you would like to contact me regarding any of the material in this course, then my email address is

Further practical details about the course are covered in Section 1.
