Handbook of Regression Analysis With Applications in R, 2nd Edition
— August 21, 2020
By Jeffrey Simonoff, Robert A. Miller Faculty Fellow and Professor of Statistics, and Samprit Chatterjee, Emeritus Professor of Statistics
Handbook of Regression Analysis with Applications in R, Second Edition is a comprehensive and up-to-date guide to conducting complex regressions in the R statistical programming language. Professors Jeffrey Simonoff and Samprit Chatterjee’s thorough treatment of “classical” regression analysis in the first edition is complemented here by their discussion of more advanced topics including time-to-event survival data and longitudinal and clustered data.
The book further pays particular attention to methods that have become prominent in the last few decades as increasingly large data sets have made new techniques and applications possible. These include:
- Regularization methods
- Smoothing methods
- Tree-based methods
Of interest to undergraduate and graduate students taking courses in statistics and regression, the Handbook of Regression Analysis will also be invaluable to practicing data scientists and statisticians.
