Recent computational advances have made it feasible to t hierarchical models in a wide range of serious applications. If one entertains a collection of such models for a given data set, the problems of model adequacy and model choice arise. We focus on the former. While model checking usually addresses the entire model speciication, model failures can occur at each hierarchical stage. Such failures include outliers, mean structure errors, dispersion misspeciication, and inappropriate… CONTINUE READING
