Comparing multiple (g)lm in one graph #rstats

It’s been a while since a user of my plotting-functions asked whether it would be possible to compare multiple (generalized) linear models in one graph (see comment). While it is already possible to compare multiple models as table output, I now managed to build a function that plots several (g)lm-objects in a single ggplot-graph. The

Inference for AR(p) Time Series

Consider a (stationary) autoregressive process, say of order 2, for some white noise with variance . Here is a code to generate such a process, > phi1=.25 > phi2=.7 > n=1000 > set.seed(1) > e=rnorm(n) > Z=rep(0,n) > for(t in 3:n) Z=phi1*Z+phi2*Z+e > Z=Z > n=length(Z) > plot(Z,type="l") Here, we have to estimate two sets of parameters: the autoregressive...

Binomial testing with buttered toast

January 28, 2014
By

Rasmus' post of last week on binomial testing made me think about p-values and testing again. In my head I was tossing coins, thinking about gender diversity and toast. The toast and tossing a buttered toast in particular was the most helpful thought experiment, as I didn't have a fixed opinion on the probabilities for a toast to...
