Vector Generalized Linear and Additive Models: With an by Thomas W. Yee

By Thomas W. Yee

This publication provides a vastly enlarged statistical framework in comparison to generalized linear versions (GLMs) with which to technique regression modelling. Comprising of approximately half-a-dozen significant periods of statistical types, and fortified with worthwhile infrastructure to make the versions extra totally operable, the framework permits analyses in line with many semi-traditional utilized facts versions to be played as a coherent whole.

Since their creation in 1972, GLMs have unified vital distributions lower than a unmarried umbrella with huge, immense implications. in spite of the fact that, GLMs aren't versatile adequate to deal with the calls for of useful info research. And data-driven GLMs, within the type of generalized additive types (GAMs), also are mostly restricted to the exponential relations. The technique the following and accompanying software program (the large VGAM R package deal) are directed at those barriers and are defined comprehensively for the 1st time in a single quantity. This ebook treats distributions and classical versions as generalized regression versions, and the result's a much wider program base for GLMs and GAMs.

The booklet can be utilized in senior undergraduate or first-year postgraduate classes on GLMs or express facts research and as a strategy source for VGAM clients. within the moment a part of the e-book, the R package deal VGAM permits readers to understand instantly purposes of the method. R code is built-in within the textual content, and datasets are used all through. power functions contain ecology, finance, biostatistics, and social sciences. The methodological contribution of this ebook stands by myself and doesn't require use of the VGAM package.
