Checking Assumptions, Residuals, and Influential Observations

  • Ronald Christensen
Part of the Springer Texts in Statistics book series (STS)


This book deals with linear model theory, and as such we have assumed that the data are good and that the models are true. Unfortunately, good data are rare and true models are even rarer. Chapters 13 and 14 discuss some additional tools used by statisticians to deal with the problems presented by real data.
