STAT 774. Generalized Linear Models. 3 Credits.
This course introduces the statistical theory and inference of generalized linear models (GLMs) which deals the cases that the normality of response data is in absence. The course starts from a review of linear regression with matrix approach. The topic includes exponential distribution family, link functions, contingency tables, GLMs, quasi-GLMs, deviance, residuals, model selection and diagnostics. Students are expected to be able to apply GLMs technique to deal with real world problems in diverse areas. Prereq: STAT 768.
