Growth Curve and Structural Equation Modeling: Topics from by Ratan Dasgupta
By Ratan Dasgupta
This ebook describes a few fresh traits in GCM learn on diversified topic parts, either theoretical and utilized. This comprises instruments and probabilities for extra paintings via new suggestions and amendment of latest ones. A progress curve is an empirical version of the evolution of a volume over the years. development curves in longitudinal reviews are utilized in disciplines together with biology, information, inhabitants reviews, economics, organic sciences, sociology, nano-biotechnology, and fluid mechanics. the amount contains unique reviews, theoretical findings and case stories from a variety of utilized paintings. This quantity builds on shows from a GCM workshop held on the Indian Statistical Institute, Giridih, January 18-19, 2014. This booklet follows the quantity Advances in progress Curve Models, released by means of Springer in 2013. the implications have significant software in overall healthiness care, prediction of crop yield, baby nutrients, poverty measurements, estimation of development expense, and different learn areas.
