A modified Aitken Pivotal Condensation Method for partial regression and multiple correlation

Abstract

In this modification of the Aitken Pivotal Condensation Method for obtaining partial regression weights and multiple correlation coefficients, the unit matrices used by Aitken are eliminated, with a resultant decrease in the computational work. Through a simplified arrangement of successive matrices, each one is reduced by the same simple rule. Other modifications also contribute to ease of computation and facilitate checking.
