## Alternative Methods of Regression (Wiley Series in Probability and Statistics)Book Title :Alternative Methods of Regression (Wiley Series in Probability and Statistics) Of related interest Nonlinear Regression Analysis and its Applications Douglas M. Bates and Donald G. Watts "an extraordinary presentation of concepts and methods concerning the use and analysis of nonlinear regression modelshighly recommend[ed]for anyone needing to use andor understand issues concerning the analysis of nonlinear regression models." Technometrics This book provides a balance between theory and practice supported by extensive displays of instructive geometrical constructs. Numerous indepth case studies illustrate the use of nonlinear regression analysiswith all data sets real. Topics include: multiresponse parameter estimation models defined by systems of differential equations and improved methods for presenting inferential results of nonlinear analysis. 1988 (0471816434) 365 pp. Nonlinear Regression G. A. F. Seber and C. J. Wild "[a] comprehensive and scholarly workimpressively thorough with attention given to every aspect of the modeling process" Short Book Reviews of the International Statistical Institute In this introduction to nonlinear modeling, the authors examine a wide range of estimation techniques including least squares, quasilikelihood, and Bayesian methods, and discuss some of the problems associated with estimation. The book presents new and important material relating to the concept of curvature and its growing role in statistical inference. It also covers three useful classes of models growth, compartmental, and multiphase and emphasizes the limitations involved in fitting these models. Packed with examples and graphs, it offers statisticians, statistical consultants, and statistically oriented research scientists uptodate access to their fields. 1989 (0471617601) 768 pp. Mathematical Programming in Statistics T. S. Arthanari and Yadolah Dodge "The authors have achieved their stated intentionin an outstanding and useful manner for both students and researchersContains a superb synthesis of references linked to the special topics and formulations by a succinct set of bibliographical notesShould be in the hands of all system analysts and computer system architects." Computing Reviews This unique book brings together most of the available results on applications of mathematical programming in statistics, and also develops the necessary statistical and programming theory and methods. 1981 (047108073X) 413 pp. Author(s) :David Birkes; Dr. Yadolah Dodge (1993) Click on the link below to Keyword(s): Other links : |
