Product description

Linear models are central to the practice of statistics and form the foundation of a vast range of statistical methodologies. Julian J. Faraway's critically acclaimed Linear Models with R examined regression and analysis of variance, demonstrated the different methods available, and showed in which situations each one applies. Following in those footsteps, Extending the Linear Model with R surveys the techniques that grow from the regression model, presenting three extensions to that framework: generalized linear models (GLMs), mixed effect models, and nonparametric regression models. The author's treatment is thoroughly modern and covers topics that include GLM diagnostics, generalized linear mixed models, trees, and even the use of neural networks in statistics. To demonstrate the interplay of theory and practice, throughout the book the author weaves the use of the R software environment to analyze the data of real examples, providing all of the R commands necessary to reproduce the analyses. All of the data described in the book is available at http://people.bath.ac.uk/jjf23/ELM/ Statisticians need to be familiar with a broad range of ideas and techniques. This book provides a well-stocked toolbox of methodologies, and with its unique presentation of these very modern statistical techniques, holds the potential to break new ground in the way graduate-level courses in this area are taught.

Review quote

"This is a very pleasant book to read. It clearly demonstrates the different methods available and in which situations each one applies. It covers almost all of the standard topics beyond linear models that a graduate student in statistics should know. It also includes discussion of topics such as model diagnostics, rarely addressed in books of this type. The presentation incorporates an abundance of well-chosen examples ... In summary, this is book is highly recommended..." -Biometrics, December 2006 "I enjoyed this text as much as the first one. The book is recommended as a textbook for a computational statistical and data mining course including GLMs and non-parametric regression, and will also be of great value to the applied statistician whose statistical programming environment of choice is R." -Giovanni Montana, Imperial College, Journal of Applied Statistics, July 2007, Vol. 34, No. 5 "... well-written and the discussions are easy to follow ... very useful as a reference book for applied statisticians and would also serve well as a textbook for students graduating in statistics." -Andreas Rosenblad, Uppsala University, Computational Statistics, April 2009, Vol. 24 "The text is well organized and carefully written ... provides an overview of many modern statistical methodologies and their applications to real data using software. This makes it a useful text for practitioners and graduate students alike." -Colin Gallagher, Clemson University, Journal of the American Statistical Association, December 2007, Vol. 102, No. 480 "It provides a well-stocked toolbook of methodologies, and with its unique presentation on these very modern statistical techniques, holds the potential to break new ground in the way graduate-level courses in this area are taught." -Janos Sztrik, Zentralblatt Math, 2006, Vol. 1095, No. 21
