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


This chapter considers two approaches to testing linear models. The approaches are identical in that a test under either approach is a well-defined test under the other. The two methods differ only conceptually. One approach is that of testing models; the other approach involves testing linear parametric functions.
