Most of the observable phenomena in the empirical sciences are of a multivariate nature. In financial studies, assets in the stock markets are observed simultaneously and their joint development is analyzed to better understand general tendencies and to track indices. In medicine recorded observations of subjects in different locations are the basis of reliable diagnoses and medication. In quantitative marketing consumer preferences are collected in order to construct models of consumer behavior. The underlying theoretical structure of these and many other quantitative studies of applied sciences is multivariate. The course of Multivariate Statistical Analysis (MVA) describes a collection of procedures which involve observation and analysis of more than one statistical variable at a time.
