Generalized additive models: an introduction with R

By: Wood, Simon N.
Series: Texts in statistical science. Publisher: Boca Raton Chapman & Hall/CRC 2006Description: xvii, 392 p.ISBN: 9781584884743.Subject(s): Mathematics - Statistics | Random walks (Mathematics) | Linear models (Statistics) | R (Computer program language) - Mathematical modelsDDC classification: 519.282 Summary: Generalized Additive Models: An Introduction with R imparts a thorough understanding of the theory and practical applications of GAMs and related advanced models, enabling informed use of these very flexible tools. The author bases his approach on a framework of penalized regression splines, and builds a well-grounded foundation through motivating chapters on linear and generalized linear models. While firmly focused on the practical aspects of GAMs, discussions include fairly full explanations of the theory underlying the methods. Use of the freely available R software helps explain the theory and illustrates the practicalities of linear, generalized linear, and generalized additive models, as well as their mixed effect extensions.
