Introduction to Graphical Modelling, Hardback Book

Introduction to Graphical Modelling Hardback

Part of the Springer Texts in Statistics series


A useful introduction to this topic for both students and researchers, with an emphasis on applications and practicalities rather than on a formal development.

It is based on the popular software package for graphical modelling, MIM, freely available for downloading from the Internet.

Following a description of some of the basic ideas of graphical modelling, subsequent chapters describe particular families of models, including log-linear models, Gaussian models, and models for mixed discrete and continuous variables.

Further chapters cover hypothesis testing and model selection.

Chapters 7 and 8 are new to this second edition and describe the use of directed, chain, and other graphs, complete with a summary of recent work on causal inference.
