DESCRIPTION:Abstract: The talk is concerned with random-effects models and
their application in experimental science. I will discuss in detail two sp
ecific experiments, both involving animal behavior, plus technical matte
rs as they arise in context. The role of the experimental design in the fo
rmulation of stochastic models will be discussed, with emphasis on the ba
seline and on the mathematical distinction between covariates and relation
ships. Technical matters that arise include the following: Covariance func
tions; Compatibility of factorial models with randomization; REML and li
kelihood-ratio statistics; Limitations of Wald tests; Fitted versus pr
edicted values. Remarks on software and computation. The talk is based mai
nly on a forthcoming book titled 'Ten Projects in Applied Statistics', bu
t also partly on joint work with Heather Battey at Imperial College, Lond
on. \n\nHost: Debashis Mondal
