Residuals and influence in regression. (English) Zbl 0564.62054
Monographs on Statistics and Applied Probability. New York - London: Chapman and Hall. X, 230 p. £14.45 (1982).
This textbook is meant for a second course in regression analysis. There are no exercises for the student, but there are many numerical examples based on real data. The emphasis is on the use of graphical methods for checking the agreement between the data and the mathematical model the data are assumed to conform to. Many of the methods described do not appear in any other existing textbooks, which should make this volume particularly useful.
