about

`Repression diagnostics are a collection of methods used to find (diagnose) unusual features in a regression problem. `Although informal diagnostics have a long and respectable history, it is only in the last fifteen years or so that they have been systematically studied. Atkinson has been one of the key players in this area, with several important papers dating from the early 1970s. The book clearly builds onmuch of that earlier work, but it is not intended as a research monograph, but as an introduction and guide to using diagnostics as a practical part of regression analysis. Both research statisticians and users of statistics should find this book generally both interesting and accessible. `A major strength of this book is Atkinson's decision to present only a subset of diagnostic methods that have been suggested in the literature, rather than giving the reader a menu of possibilities to choose from. In a field with few underlying principles and much that requires experience andpractice, the reader who is new to the area can only benefit from learning a reasonably coherent collection of methods.' From a review by Sanford Weisberg, University of Minnesota.
A. C. Atkinson is at Imperial College, University of London.

Editorial Reviews

'An unusually actual and application oriented monograph on an important subject, which has not yet been covered sufficiently by adequate books. In his very comprehensive and illustrative mode of presentation the author gives a lively presentation of classical and new extremely useful methodsof checking models and the data to which they are fitted.'
