Synopses & Reviews
Analysis of variance (ANOVA) models have become widely used tools and play a fundamental role in much of the application of statistics today. In particular, ANOVA models involving random effects have found widespread application to experimental design in a variety of fields requiring measurements of variance, including agriculture, biology, animal breeding, applied genetics, econometrics, quality control, medicine, engineering, and social sciences. This two-volume work is a comprehensive presentation of different methods and techniques for point estimation, interval estimation, and tests of hypotheses for linear models involving random effects. Both Bayesian and repeated sampling procedures are considered. Volume I examines models with balanced data (orthogonal models); Volume II studies models with unbalanced data (nonorthogonal models). Features and Topics: * Systematic treatment of the commonly employed crossed and nested classification models used in analysis of variance designs * Detailed and thorough discussion of certain random effects models not commonly found in texts at the introductory or intermediate level * Numerical examples to analyze data from a wide variety of disciplines * Many worked examples containing computer outputs from standard software packages such as SAS, SPSS, and BMDP for each numerical example * Extensive exercise sets at the end of each chapter * Numerous appendices with background reference concepts, terms, and results * Balanced coverage of theory, methods, and practical applications * Complete citations of important and related works at the end of each chapter, as well as an extensive general bibliography Accessible to readers with only a modest mathematical and statistical background, the work will appeal to a broad audience of students, researchers, and practitioners in the mathematical, life, social, and engineering sciences. It may be used as a textbook in upper-level undergraduate and graduate courses, or as a reference for readers interested in the use of random effects models for data analysis.
Review
"In general, the sections of each chapter cover the mathematical model, analysis of variance, point and interval estimation of variance components, hypothesis tests, and Bayesian estimation.... Each chapter includes plenty of examples, most of which contain hand calculations. There are also numerous examples of software output, including SAS, SPSS, and BMDP output.... The layout of this comprehensive book makes it easy to find exactly what you need. The writing is clear, giving extensive explanations of advanced topics. The authors make it clear in the Preface that they are providing comprehensive coverage of linear models with random effects. They do not, in general, provide proofs of theorems.... However, plenty of references are given for the reader who wishes to delve into the theory more deeply.... In short, this book is an excellent addition to my modeling library. Volume II on unbalanced models has been published and looks to be as good a book as Volume I." --TECHNOMETRICS "This is Volume I, covering balanced data, of a two-volume work on the analysis of variance used to develop random effects models. The theory and practice of fitting models, where all effects are considered to be random, are discussed in considerable detail for a wide range of experimental situations involving one, two or three factors, including both crossed and nested designs.... Within each chapter for each model, the distribution theory of a variety of classical estimators...is described, and these estimators are illustrated with a numerical example supported by computer output derived from SAS, SPSS and BMDP.... This text will provide a useful reference source for theoretical results and practical examples since each chapter is further supported by a comprehensive set of exercises and an extensive reference list." --Short Book Reviews of the International Statistical Institute "This book is accessible to readers with only a modest mathematical and statistical background. The work will appeal to a broad audience of students, researchers, and practitioners in the mathematical, life, social, and engineering sciences. It may be used as a textbook in upper-level undergraduate and graduate courses, or as a reference for readers interested in the use of random effects models for data analysis." --Zentralblatt Math Review of both volumes "This two-volume set provides an encyclopedic and historical account of the theory and application of classical random-effects models.... For users of random-effects models and those interested in the theoretical development of this topic, these books are a valuable resource.... Throuhgout the [text], the authors go to great lengths to provide references to original sources that would allow the reader to fill in details that are not included in the text.... By selecting an appropriate subset of topics, an instructor could create an outstanding graduate-level course on random-effects models.... These books provide an excellent unified reference on the methodological developments associated with classical random-effects models over the past 50 years." --Journal of the American Statistical Association
