What things can i do with set of X and Y variables

  1. May 27, 2009 #1
    Hi i am currently doing a project and I am taking as input a set of X and Y variables.
    I have implemented linear regression and polynomial regression (i have a panel of functions)..so i was wondering if anybody could suggest maybe one or two other things i could implement with the x and y data sets that can be done in java and is not too complicated as i have to submit it soon. thanks in advance

    A note on terminology: you mean you have one variable X, and one variable Y, and a number of values for those variables.

    What you might do depends on what your assignment is looking for. Do you compute squared errors/correlation, or F-scores for your regression coefficients? Those are useful. If you want to do entirely different kinds of regression you might try implementing logistic regression (although that might be a little trickier since it is not closed form and must be computed numerically). A normal quantile plot for your regression error is another thing you could do.

    Hi well this isn't an assignment but a project that i get to choose what goes but as i am running short on time i don't want anything to heavy. Just some things to make it look more detailed the normal quartile plots is one and i was wondering if there are any distributions that are not too much work that might apply... thanks for your help.
