An overview of the analytical methods for interaction is given with particular interest in the row- and/or column-wise multiple comparison procedures for the case where there is a natural ordering in the rows and/or columns. The methods are useful not only for the analysis of variance model, but also for two-way contingency tables. In particular, a new approach is introduced to classifying rows according to their convex, flat or concave response patterns along the columns. A real example of classifying 147 subjects based on their 24 hours blood pressure measurements is also given.
