QM 460. Techniques in Data Mining. (3 Credits)

Data mining involves a collection of techniques for extracting patterns and trends in large databases. As more of our everyday life is recorded and quantified, these techniques are quickly becoming a standard analytical tool in a number of fields, including information technology, banking, retail marketing, and consulting. This course offers a hands-on introduction to methods used in this new and exciting field. Prerequisites: QM 291 or equivalent, QM 292 or equivalent, and CS 135 or CIS 125 or equivalent.

QM 480. Regression and Time-Series Analysis. (3 Credits)

Extensive analysis of simple and multiple regression in both linear and nonlinear forms. Techniques of instrumental variables and model building. Extensions of regression to time-series and econometrics. Emphasis is on application of models to actual business problems. Prerequisite: QM 292. (Offered on sufficient demand)

QM 490. Experimental Design and Advanced Statistical Process Control. (3 Credits)

Basic experimental design and statistical process control methods, including randomized block, factorial, nested, repeated measures, and alias structure designs, and Shewhart, CUSUM, EWMA, and retrospective control charts. Emphasis is placed on techniques commonly used in industrial data analysis. Prerequisite: QM 292. (Offered on sufficient demand)

QM 495. Mathematical Economics. (3 Credits)

Applications of calculus and matrix theory in economics, including elasticity optimization, equilibrium, and linear models. Prerequisites: QM 292 or equivalent; QM 295 or equivalent.
