The laplace approximation and inference in generalized linear models with two or more random effectsPratt, James L. 29 November 1994 (has links)
This thesis proposes an approximate maximum likelihood estimator and
likelihood ratio test for parameters in a generalized linear model when two or
more random effects are present. Substantial progress in parameter estimation
for such models has been made with methods involving generalized least squares
based on the approximate marginal mean and covariance matrix. However, tests
and confidence intervals based on this approach have been limited to what is
provided through asymptotic normality of estimates. The proposed solution is
based on maximizing a Laplace approximation to the loglikelihood function.
This approximation is remarkably accurate and has previously been
demonstrated to work well for obtaining likelihood based estimates and
inferences in generalized linear models with a single random effect. This thesis
concentrates on extensions to the case of several random effects and the
comparison of the likelihood ratio inference from this approximate likelihood
analysis to the Waldlike inferences for existing estimators.
The shapes of the Laplace approximate and true loglikelihood functions
are practically identical, implying that maximum likelihood estimates and
likelihood ratio inferences are obtained from the Laplace approximation to the
loglikelihood. Use of the Laplace approximation circumvents the need for
numerical integration, which can be practically impossible to compute when
there are two random effects. However, both the Laplace and exact (via
numerical integration) methods require numerical optimization, a sometimes
slow process, for obtaining estimates and inferences.
The proposed Laplace method for estimation and inference is
demonstrated for three real (and some simulated) data sets, along with results
from alternative methods which involve use of marginal means and covariances.
The Laplace approximate method and another denoted as Restricted Maximum
Likelihood (REML) performed rather similarly for estimation and hypothesis
testing. The REML approach produced faster analyses and was much easier to
implement while the Laplace implementation provided likelihood ratio based
inferences rather than those relying on asymptotic normality. / Graduation date: 1995

On some extensions of generalized linear models with varying dispersionWu, Kayui, Karl., 胡家銳. January 2012 (has links)
When dealing with exponential family distributions, a constant dispersion
is often assumed since it simplifies both model formulation and estimation.
In contrast, heteroscedasticity is a common feature of almost every empirical
data set. In this dissertation, the dispersion parameter is no longer considered
as constant throughout the entire sample, but defined as the expected
deviance of the individual response yi and its expected value _i such that it
will be expressed as a linear combination of some covariates and their coefficients.
At the same time, the dispersion regression is an essential part of a
double Generalized Linear Model in which mean and dispersion are modelled in two interlinked and pseudosimultaneously estimated submodels.
In other words, the deviance is a function of the response mean which on the
other hand depends on the dispersion. Due to the mutual dependency, the
estimation algorithm will be iterated as long as the improvement of the one
parameter leads to significant changes of the other until it is not the case.
If appropriate covariates are chosen, the model’s goodness of fit should
be improved by the property that the dispersion is estimated by external
information instead of being a constant. In the following, the advantage
of dispersion modelling will be shown by its application on three different
types of data: a) zeroinflated data, b) nonlinear time series data, and
c) clinical trials data. All these data follow distributions of the exponential
family for which the application of the Generalized Linear Model is justified,
but require certain extensions of modelling methodologies.
In this dissertation, The enhanced goodness of fit given that the constant
dispersion assumption is dropped will be shown in the above listed
examples. In fact, by formulating and carrying out score and Wald tests
on testing for the possible occurrence of varying dispersion, evidence of
heterogeneous dispersion could be found to be present in the data sets considered.
Furthermore, although model formulation, asymptotic properties
and computational effort are more extensive when dealing with the double
models, the benefits and advantages in terms of improved fitting results and
more efficient parameter estimates appear to justify the additional effort not
only for the types of data introduced, but also generally for empirical data
analysis, on different types of data as well. / published_or_final_version / Statistics and Actuarial Science / Doctoral / Doctor of Philosophy

Linear model diagnostics and measurement error07 September 2010 (has links)
The general linear model, the weighted linear model, and the generalized linear model are presented in detail. Diagnostic tools for the linear models are considered. In general the standard analysis for linear models does not account for measurement error. / Thesis (M.Sc.)  University of KwaZuluNatal, Pietermaritzburg, 2007.
