Science - Mathematics & Statistics / modelli di regressione lineare
English term or phrase: transform-
Qualcuni si intende di statistica? Io no... ma trovo questo termine in uno studio per valutare il ruolo del plancton marino nella biosfera.

The researchers therefore assessed how well spatial variability effects could be predicted by a particular mathematical modelling approach. In order to match their model to observational data from the Bermuda Atlantic time series (BATS), the team collaborated with BATS on a statistical study.They discovered that carbon biomass could be accurately inferred from the measurement of variables like pigment and irradiance using ***transform***-linear multiple regression models.

Ho trovato "modelli di regressione lineare multipla"..... ma quel "transform" ????

The English is very odd. What it seems to mean is that multiple linear regression was carried out on transformed variables.

modelli di regressione lineare multipla

ho chiesto qualche delucidazione a persone più esperte, pare che il termine "transform" si possa tralasciare; è possibile che il testo originale non sia stato scritto in inglese?

neutral  DLyons: It's not at all certain that "transform" can be ignored.// I didn't say you did :-)

(modelli di regressione lineare multipla) basati sul metodo di trasformazione

cioè, transform abbinato al model, non agli altri termini.

per esempio, basato sulla trasformazione logaritmica
