The author delivers an integrated presentation of various aspects of the modeling process not often considered together in textbooks on statistics, including variable and model selection, use of spline functions to relax assumptions regarding linearity, assessment of model fit, strategies for handling missing data and avoiding overfitting Cited by: 1. The data contain information about the random phenomenon under consideration and the objective of statistical analysis is to express this information in an understandable form using statistical procedures. We also make inferences about the unknown aspects of random phenomena and seek an understanding of causal relationships.

The topic of this book is function estimation using polynomial splines. The polynomial spline approach is one of several to estimate functions that are smooth, but not necessarily linear.

Other approaches include kernel methods, local polynomial methods and smoothing splines. Some of. In mathematics, a spline is a special function defined piecewise by interpolating problems, spline interpolation is often preferred to polynomial interpolation because it yields similar results, even when using low degree polynomials, while avoiding Runge's phenomenon for higher degrees.
