Using GAMs to model non-linear relationships!
The goal of this workshop will be to first examine what is a non-linear model, and how Generalized Additive Models (GAM) allow us to handle non-linear relationships.
We will also go over how to plot and interpret these non-linear relationships, how to include interaction terms, autocorrelated errors and expand on previous workshop by briefly examining a mixed modeling framework.
We will also briefly touch upon what GAM are doing behind the scenes.
