Title: Modeling Architectural Factors and Garden Visibility in Pompeii
Author(s): Ben N Dyhr* and Summer Trentin and Janae Bacca
Companies: Metropolitan State University of Denver and Metropolitan State University of Denver and Metropolitan State University of Denver
Keywords: Undergraduate research; Art; History; Logistic regression

An interdisciplinary partnership with Dr. Summer Trentin, art historian, was initially forged while designing an undergraduate capstone project for senior-level statistics students. This partnership developed into a research program for precisely characterizing relationships of architectural features in ancient Pompeii. Here we describe the undergraduate project structure used for our initial collaborations and the original research resulting from the work: a logistic regression model that reveals new relationships between architectural column styles and visibility of peristyle gardens for residential structures in Pompeii.
