9 PCA The eigen values are the variance components: Proportion of total variance explained by the kth PC:

10 PCA

11 PCA The geometrical interpretation of PCA:

12 PCA PCA using the correlation matrix, instead of the covariance matrix? This is equivalent to first standardizing all X vectors.

13 PCA Using the correlation matrix avoids the domination from one X variable due to scaling (unit changes), for example using inch instead of foot. Example:

14 PCA Selecting the number of components? Based on eigen values (% variation explained). Assumption: the small amount of variation explained by low-rank PCs is noise.

15 Factor Analysis If we take the first several PCs that explain most of the variation in the data, we have one form of factor model. L: loading matrix F: unobserved random vector (latent variables). ε: unobserved random vector (noise)

16 Factor Analysis Orthogonal factor model assumes no correlation between the factor RVs. is a diagonal matrix

17 Factor Analysis

18 Factor Analysis Rotations in the m-dimensional subspace defined by the factors make the solution non-unique: PCA is one unique solution, as the vectors are sequentially selected. Maximum likelihood estimator is another solution:

19 Factor Analysis As we said, rotations within the m-dimensional subspace doesn’t change the overall amount of variation explained. Do rotation to make the results more interpretable:

20 Factor Analysis Varimax criterion: Find T such that is maximized. V is proportional to the summation of the variance of the squared loadings. Maximizing V makes the squared loadings as spread out as possible --- some are real small, and some are real big.

21 Factor Analysis Orthogonal simple factor rotation:
Rotate the orthogonal factors around the origin until the system is maximally aligned with the separate clusters of variables. Oblique Simple Structure Rotation: Allow the factors to become correlated. Each factor is rotated individually to fit a cluster.

22 MDS Multidimensional scaling is a dimension reduction procedure that maps the distances between observations to a lower dimensional space. Minimize this objective function: D: distance in the original space d: distance in the reduced dimension space. Numerical method is used for the minimization.

23 EDR space Now we start talking about regression. The data is {xi, yi} Is dimension reduction on X matrix alone helpful here? Possibly, if the dimension reduction preserves the essential structure about Y|X. This is suspicious. Effective Dimension Reduction --- reduce the dimension of X without losing information which is essential to predict Y.

24 EDR space The model: Y is predicted by a set of linear combinations of X. If g() is known, this is not very different from a generalized linear model. For dimension reduction purpose, is there a scheme which can work on almost any g(), without knowledge of its actual form?

25 EDR space The general model encompasses many models as special cases:

26 EDR space Under this general model, The space B generated by β1, β2, ……, βK is called the e.d.r. space. Reducing to this sub-space causes no loss of information regarding predicting Y. Similar to factor analysis, the subspace B is identifiable, but the vectors aren’t. Any non-zero vector in the e.d.r. space is called an e.d.r. direction.

27 EDR space This equation assumes almost the weakest form, to reflect the hope that a low-dimensional projection of a high-dimensional regresser variable contains most of the information that can be gathered from a sample of modest size. It doesn’t impose any structure on how the projected regresser variables effect the output variable. Most regression models assume K=1, plus additional structures on g().

28 EDR space The philosophical point of Sliced Inverse Regression: the estimation of the projection directions can be a more important statistical issue than the estimation of the structure of g() itself. After finding a good e.d.r. space, we can project data to this smaller space. Then we are in a better position to identify what should be pursued further : model building, response surface estimation, cluster analysis, heteroscedasticity analysis, variable selection, ……

29 SIR Sliced Inverse Regression. In regular regression, our interest is the conditional density h(Y|X). Most important is E(Y|x) and var(Y|x). SIR treats Y as independent variable and X as the dependent variable. Given Y=y, what values will X take? This takes us from a p-dimensional problem (subject to curse of dimensionality) back to a 1-dimensional curve-fitting problem: E(xi|y), i=1,…, p

34 SIR and LDA Reminder: Fisher’s linear discriminant analysis seeks a projection direction that maximized class separation. When the underlying distributions are Gaussian, it agrees with the Bayes decision rule. It seeks to maximize: Between-group variance: Within-group variance:
