An R Companion to Linear Statistical Models - Christopher Hay-Jahans
Call Number: JS Gericke Library Upper Level (519.50285 HAY )
ISBN: 9781439873656
Publication Date: 2011-10-19
Focusing on user-developed programming, An R Companion to Linear Statistical Models serves two audiences: those who are familiar with the theory and applications of linear statistical models and wish to learn or enhance their skills in R; and those who are enrolled in an R-based course on regression and analysis of variance. For those who have never used R, the book begins with a self-contained introduction to R that lays the foundation for later chapters.

Examples of how to write programs using the R programming language are provided. These examples cover methods used for linear regression and designed experiments with up to two fixed-effects factors, including blocking variables and covariates. It also demonstrates applications of several pre-packaged functions for complex computational procedures.
