Regression analysis is one of the most powerful statistical techniques that is used to explain variability in a response (dependent) variable as a function of one or more predictor (explanatory or independent) variables.  The aim of this seminar is to help participants increase their skills in using regression analysis with R.  The seminar does not teach regression, per se, but focuses on how to perform regression analyses using R. However, it gives a very brief review on the theoretical background as necessary.  It is assumed that participants have had at least a one quarter/semester course in regression (linear models) or a general statistical methods course that covers simple and multiple regression and have access to a regression textbook that explains the theoretical background of the materials covered in this seminar.  These materials also assume basic familiarity with R, for example that you have taken the Introduction to R seminar or have equivalent knowledge of R.  The seminar begins with simple regression and generalize the methods to multiple regression, followed by regression diagnostics, regression with categorical predictors, and finally a quick look at the generalized linear model and logistic regression.

NOTE: This event is only available in-person at UCLA. There will not be online access to this event. Please only register for the event if you are able to attend in-person.

The Hoffman2 cluster is a powerful computational resource for the UCLA research community. This class is designed to clarify the process of porting your own applications on the cluster or using applications already available on the cluster. It also addresses how to port your workflow to the Hoffman2 and how to submit batch and run interactive applications.


Thursday, February 28, 2019 - 9:00am to 12:00pm

R Markdown files integrate text, Markdown, and R code into dynamic documents that weave together plain text, formatted text, and the output of the R code.  The resulting dynamic reports can be produced in many formats, including HTML documents, HTML slideshows, LaTeX pdf, Beamer slideshows, MS Word doc, books, scientific articles, and websites.   This seminar covers basic coding and conventions of the 3 frameworks upon which R Markdown depends:  Markdown for formatting text, knitr for R code chunks, and YAML for rendering the document.  The seminar does not assume any previous experience with R Markdown, but attendees who wish to participate in seminar demonstrations should come with RStudio and R Markdown installed on their computers.

NOTE: This event is only available in-person at UCLA. There will not be online access to this event. Please only register for the event if you are able to attend in-person.

This class will address the process of creating Matlab standalone executables and running Matlab in batch, as well as running Abaqus python scripts. Example of how to submit array jobs using Abaqus, R and other applications. Can my simulations be submitted as array jobs? Bring your own problem. Also, Jupyter Notebooks: another way to run python and R on Hoffman2.


Thursday, March 7, 2019 - 2:00pm to 4:00pm
at IDRE Portal - 5628 Math Sciences, UCLA

We will discuss how to effectively run jobs on Hoffman2 cluster. Hoffman2 cluster serves a wide spectrum of user applications and is almost always heavily loaded. We will first review the model and policy of Hoffman2's job scheduling, followed by fundamentals of using its job scheduler, Univa Grid Engine. A number of common use cases will be discussed in details, including: (1) Single-CPU jobs, (2) Multi-CPU, same-node jobs, (3) Multiple-node (MPI-style) jobs and (4) Job arrays.
