This monograph deals with a class of statistical models that generalizes classical linear models to include many other models that have been found useful in statistical analysis. These include log-linear models for the analysis of data in the form of proportions, and models for continuous data with constant proportional standard error. In addition, important types of models for survival data are covered by the class. The book requires the reader to have a knowledge of matrix theory, but as far as possible it is self-contained. All theory is illustrated with a diverse set of worked examples.
