University Stats Camp: Multilevel Structural Equation Modeling with xxM Seminar

September 17, 2018 @ 9:00 am - September 19, 2018 @ 5:00 pm
OIT Conference Room 5308B, 5308B Math Sciences Building, 520 Portola Plaza
Los Angeles, CA 90095 United States

A comprehensive 3-day Stats Camp seminar on Multilevel SEM with xxM. This seminar teaches skills necessary to conduct analysis of complex multilevel data-structures from an nLevel Structural Equation Modeling perspective. Conventional multilevel modeling and multilevel-structural equation modeling work well with ‘standard’ multilevel data. The n-Level structural equation modeling (NL-SEM) framework is intended for both conventional and non-standard data-structures. Non-standard data are indeed very common across multiple domains but rarely analyzed in a satisfactory manner.   Instructor, Paras Mehta, Ph.D. 9:00am -…

Understanding the dynamics of killer electrons in Earth’s radiation belts: a synthesis of high-performance computing, data assimilation, and physics-based modeling

October 28, 2015 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

Speaker: Dr. Adam C. Kellerman, Researcher, Earth, Planetary, and Space Sciences University of California, Los Angeles Abstract: The Van Allen radiation belts are torii-shaped regions of trapped energetic particles, that in recent years, have become a principle focus for satellite operators and engineers. During geomagnetic storms, electrons can be accelerated up to relativistic energies, where they can penetrate spacecraft shielding and damage electrical systems, causing permanent damage or loss of spacecraft. In addition, the high-energy particles can be dangerous for…
