Everywhere and all the time, huge amounts of data are generated that must be analyzed to be useful for the development of society. These data sets are large in that sense, that they may include many independent or dependent observations. They can also be more complex, with, for example, repeated measurements on the same units or individuals.

Professor Martin Singull's research focuses on statistical inference of this type of data. In particular, the considered statistical models contain unknown parameters, which describe the expected values over time as well as all dependencies. The parameters need to be estimated so that the statistical models can be further used for prediction and classification of future unknown observations.

In his latest research projects, Martin Singull uses both the spatial and temporal information in repeated measurements, to develop efficient classifiers, and derive probabilities of misclassification, for future unknown units or individuals that are assumed to follow different expected values over time.

Recent Developments in Multivariate and Random Matrix Analysis

The cover of Recent Developments in Multivariate and Random Matrix Analysis.Festschrift in Honour of Dietrich von Rosen
Edited by Thomas Holgersson and Martin Singull

This volume is a tribute to Professor Dietrich von Rosen on the occasion of his 65th birthday. It contains a collection of twenty original papers. The contents of the papers evolve around multivariate analysis and random matrices with topics such as high-dimensional analysis, goodness-of-fit measures, variable selection and information criteria, inference of covariance structures, the Wishart distribution and growth curve models.
