Big-data science is recently developed in quantity, of course, but also expanding to the time-series direction and to spatial dimensions. This multi-dimensionalization can be treated efficiently with tools of matrix algebra and matrix differentiation. In this lecture, we first study these matrix tools, and then, choosing spatial econometrics among fields towards which economics and econometrics are challenging, we study frontier techniques and knowledge in the field.
First of all, by studying matrix algebra and matrix differentiation in statistics and econometrics, we acquire maneuvering technique to handle spatial data. Then, we study various models and methods for count data analysis to handle spatial interaction dta such as international trade and inter-regional migration. Finally we study spatial autocorrelation models and their applications to spatial data and spatial interaction data.
