Joint modeling of longitudinal and time-to-event information has emerged as a singular method of deal with those issues.
Joint Modeling of Longitudinal and Time-to-Event Data
offers a scientific advent and evaluation of cutting-edge statistical technique during this energetic examine box. The equipment are illustrated through actual info examples from quite a lot of medical examine subject matters. a set of knowledge units and software program for useful implementation of the joint modeling methodologies can be found during the ebook website.
