Product Description: A comprehensive and up-to-date introduction to the fundamentals of regression analysis


The Fourth Edition of Introduction to Linear Regression Analysis describes both the conventional and less common uses of linear regression in the practical context of today's mathematical and scientific research. This popular book blends both theory and application to equip the reader with an understanding of the basic principles necessary to apply regression model-building techniques in a wide variety of application environments. It assumes a working knowledge of basic statistics and a familiarity with hypothesis testing and confidence intervals, as well as the normal, t, x2, and F distributions.

Illustrating all of the major procedures employed by the contemporary software packages MINITAB(r), SAS(r), and S-PLUS(r), the Fourth Edition begins with a general introduction to regression modeling, including typical applications. A host of technical tools are outlined, such as basic inference procedures, introductory aspects of model adequacy checking, and polynomial regression models and their variations. The book discusses how transformations and weighted least squares can be used to resolve problems of model inadequacy and also how to deal with influential observations. Subsequent chapters discuss:
* Indicator variables and the connection between regression and analysis-of-variance models
* Variable selection and model-building techniques and strategies
* The multicollinearity problem--its sources, effects, diagnostics, and remedial measures
* Robust regression techniques such as M-estimators, and properties of robust estimators
* The basics of nonlinear regression
* Generalized linear models
* Using SAS(r) for regression problems

This book is a robust resource that offers solid methodology for statistical practitioners and professionals in the fields of engineering, physical and chemical sciences, economics, management, life and biological sciences, and the social sciences. Both the accompanying FTP site, which contains data sets, extensive problem solutions, software hints, and PowerPoint(r) slides, as well as the book's revised presentation of topics in increasing order of complexity, facilitate its use in a classroom setting.

With its new exercises and structure, this book is highly recommended for upper-undergraduate and beginning graduate students in mathematics, engineering, and natural sciences. Scientists and engineers will find the book to be an excellent choice for reference and self-study.

FAQ'S

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.

We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?
Login to your account here, you’ll see your current rentals listed textbook rentals listed with a yellow box that says “track”.

5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.

8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.
