Contents:
Overview over the Book -- - Heterogeneity in Medicine -- Modeling Count Data -- Theory and Algorithms -- Disease Mapping and Cluster Investigations -- Modeling Heterogeneity in Psychophysiology -- Investigating and Analyzing Heterogeneity in Meta-Analysis -- Analysis of Gene Expression Data.
In: Springer eBooksSummary: The book shows how to model heterogeneity in medical research with covariate adjusted finite mixture models. The areas of application include epidemiology, gene expression data, disease mapping, meta-analysis, neurophysiology and pharmacology. After an informal introduction the book provides and summarizes the mathematical background necessary to understand the algorithms. The emphasis of the book is on a variety of medical applications such as gene expression data, meta-analysis and population pharmacokinetics. These applications are discussed in detail using real data from the medical literature. The book offers an R package which enables the reader to use the methods for his/her needs.
