JMP Academic Webinar - Analyzing Functional (aka Curve) Data

Researchers in numerous domains often encounter functional data, or one continuous measure that unfolds across another. Prominent examples include chemical spectra, financial series, and sensor data; think any data where the unit of analysis is not a single point, but a curve. Functional data analysis (FDA) offers techniques to analyze these curves in order to characterize their shapes and to understand how other variables affects their shapes, how their shape characteristics affect other variables, and even how to optimize their shapes. JMP Pro's Functional Data Explorer enables researchers to use FDA techniques to solve analytic problems involving this potentially challenging type of data. This webinar will provide an overview of FDA and Functional Data Explorer in order to help you add FDA to your research tool belt.

can you cluster the FPCAs in the last example?

Hi @mwp2123. I imagine you're referring to clustering functions based on their FPC scores in order to group functions with similar shapes. You can do this by going to the Red Triangle next to Function Summaries and selecting Save Summaries, then from the resulting table enter the FPC score columns into any of JMP's clustering tools.
