9780387964874: Plane Answers to Complex Questions: The Theory of Linear Models (Springer Texts in Statistics)

Illustrates the practical application of the projective approach to linear models. Unlike other books on linear models the use of projections and other vector space ideas does not stop after the general theory; vectors are employed throughout the text. In addition to the standard topics discussed in other books, this book contains discussions of the following: testing for lack of fit in the absence of replication, models with singular convariance matrices, generalized split plot models, mixed models, variance component estimation, best linear prediction, best linear unbiased prediction, residuals, leverage, influential observations, variable selection, collinearity, and loglinear models.

From the Back Cover:

This textbook provides a wide-ranging introduction to the use and theory of linear models for analyzing data. The author's emphasis is on providing a unified treatment of linear models, including analysis of variance models and regression models, based on projections, orthogonality, and other vector space ideas. Every chapter comes with numerous exercises and examples that make it ideal for a graduate-level course. All of the standard topics are covered in depth: ANOVA, estimation including Bayesian estimation, hypothesis testing, multiple comparisons, regression analysis, and experimental design models. In addition, the book covers topics that are not usually treated at this level, but which are important in their own right: balanced incomplete block designs, testing for lack of fit, testing for independence, models with singular covariance matrices, variance component estimation, best linear and best linear unbiased prediction, collinearity, and variable selection. This new edition includes a more extensive discussion of best prediction and associated ideas of R2, as well as new sections on inner products and perpendicular projections for more general spaces and Milliken and Graybill’s generalization of Tukey’s one degree of freedom for nonadditivity test.

About the Author:
