linear model

linear model

A simplistic model that proposed that a single cell’s responses to an external stimulus reflected a summation of the intensity values in the stimulus. Considering the complexity of pathways and cascades which are triggered by any form of stimulation of living cells, this model warrants deletion.

[9] proposed the general linear model (GLM), which can be used as a unified framework in the analysis of fMRI data and support multiple experimental design, but it cannot be used to rt-fMRI applications, because it needs all of the data to do the statistical analysis.
Because the responses to the CTAC items are discrete and bounded, the linear model cannot be strictly true and must be taken as an approximation (Mellenbergh, 1994).
The granular, generalized linear model plans do not lend themselves to traditional rate-making techniques.
Although error normality cannot be assumed to carry through a model transformation, the present study assumes that the error terms in the square root transformation of the linear model for wide-face edge knots are also normally distributed.
(6) can be considered as an intermediate model between models (4) and (3) (full linear model).
Before the MDR implementation, phenotypes were adjusted for the contemporary, sire and steer's age effects using residuals that were obtained after fitting the general linear model without SNP effects.
Some other extensions of the Gauss-Markov theorem have been made by Zyskind and Martin [30] for a nonnegative covariance matrix and Harville [15] for general mixed linear model.
To compare the magnitude (slope of regression) of atrazine's exposure, post-exposure, carryover, and net effects, we examined all pairwise comparisons of these four effects using the general linear model, treating pairs of effects as repeated measures variables (i.e., we compared these effects within aquaria/terraria).
On the road 1.9-litre TiD prices start at pounds 18,995 for the 120bhp 9-3 Linear model, which is pounds 435 less than the outgoing 2.2 TiD Linear, and pounds 19,995 for the 150bhp 9-3 Linear model.
Combined with a linear model of the economy, quadratic preferences are useful because they yield a first order condition that implies a linear interest rate reaction function.
On the road 1.9-litre TiD prices start from pounds 18,995 for the 120bhp 9-3 Linear model, which is pounds 435 less than the outgoing 2.2 TiD Linear, and pounds 19,995 for the 150bhp 9-3 Linear model.
The log linear model used for spatial smoothing assumed that the number of disease cases in the i-th county, [n.sub.i], has a mean, [P.sub.i][[lambda].sub.i], where [P.sub.i], is the denominator for the rates and
