Wiley Series in Probability and Statistics. Hoboken, NJ: Wiley. xvi, 557 p. (2003).
For more than two decades, the first edition of this book from 1977, see Zbl 0354.62055, has been an authoritative resource for one of the most common methods of handling statistical data. There have been many advances in the field over the last twenty years, including the development of more efficient and accurate regression computer programs, new ways of fitting regressions, and new methods of model selection and prediction. This second edition, revises and expands the standard text, providing extensive coverage of state-of-the-art theory and applications of linear regression analysis.
This new edition features: Up-to-date accounts of computational methods and algorithms currently in use without getting entrenched in minor computing details; A careful and detailed survey of the research literature, making this a highly useful reference; Expanded coverage of diagnostics, and more discussion of methods of model fitting, model selection and prediction; More than 200 problems throughout the book plus outline solutions.
The book serves as both a reliable reference for the practitioner and a valuable textbook for the student. There are 12 chapters, as well as some additions to the three Appendices: Some matrix algebra; Orthogonal projections; Tables.
