TitleNonlinear effects
ParticipantsGonzalo Garcia-Donato, Rui Paulo (Principal Investigator)
SummaryThe main objective of this research project is to develop methodology to assess whether a potential
explanatory variable has a nonlinear effect on a response. The way we intend to approach this is by
combining traditional variable selection in a normal regression setting with methods that we have
recently been developing to screen a computer model for active variables. How do we combine these
two methodologies to formally answer the question at hand?
