By Michael C. Edwards, Robert C. MacCallum
This ebook provides fresh advancements within the thought and alertness of latent variable versions (LVMs) by means of probably the most favorite researchers within the box. issues lined contain more than a few LVM frameworks together with merchandise reaction conception, structural equation modeling, issue research, and latent curve modeling, in addition to numerous non-standard information buildings and leading edge applications.
The e-book is split into sections, even supposing a number of chapters go those content material boundaries. half one makes a speciality of complexities which contain the difference of latent variables versions in examine difficulties the place real-world stipulations don't fit traditional assumptions. Chapters during this part hide matters akin to research of dyadic facts and intricate survey facts, in addition to research of express variables. half of the publication specializes in drawing real-world which means from effects received in LVMs. during this part there are chapters interpreting matters concerning evaluation of version healthy, the character of uncertainty in parameter estimates, inferences, and the character of latent variables and person differences.
This e-book appeals to researchers and graduate scholars attracted to the idea and alertness of latent variable versions. As such, it serves as a supplementary studying in graduate point classes on latent variable versions. necessities contain easy wisdom of latent variable models.

Her main research interests are latent variable models, analysis of categorical data, composite likelihood estimation, detection of outliers, and missing values. She has co- authored two books: Analysis of Multivariate Social Science Data (2008) with Bartholomew, Steele and Galbraith, and Latent Variable Models and Factor Analysis: A Unified Approach (2011) with Bartholomew and Knott. She is associate editor and member of the editorial board for four journals including Computational Statistics and Data Analysis and the Journal of Educational and Behavioural Statistics.
Current Topics in the Theory and Application of Latent Variable Models This book presents recent developments in the theory and application of latent variable models (LVMs) by some of the most prominent researchers in the field. Topics covered involve a range of LVM frameworks including item response theory, structural equation modeling, factor analysis, and latent curve modeling, as well as various non-standard data structures and innovative applications. The book is divided into two sections, although several chapters cross these content boundaries.
But I saw later in other venues, such as meetings of the Society of Multivariate Experimental Psychology, that there was much more to Michael Browne than supreme expertise in statistics and modeling. Michael possessed a precision of thinking, a dignity, an integrity, and a sense of fair play that has been all too rare in my time. His standards of professional ethics and behavior are impeccable—we would all do well to emulate them. Michael's influence on my own thinking has been tremendous. When he spent a sabbatical quarter at the University of Virginia in 1999 I daresay that I benefitted more from his company than anyone.
