Plane Answers to Complex Questions: The Theory of Linear Models - Springer Texts in Statistics (Paperback)Ronald Christensen (author)
- We can order this
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.

From the reviews of the fourth edition:"Researchers and students interested in linear statistical models. ... I admire Christensen's very personal and somehow easy-going writing style. ... All in all, Christensen's fourth edition is an excellent course and reference book ... ."--- (Simo Puntanen, International Statistical Review, Vol. 79 (3), 2011)
