Diagnostics for Linear Models With Functional Responses


Linear models where the response is a function and the predictors are vectors are useful in analyzing data from designed experiments and other situations with functional observations. Residual analysis and diagnostics are considered for such models. Studentized residuals are defined and their properties are studied. Chi-square quantile-quantile plots are proposed to check the assumption of Gaussian error process and outliers. Jackknife residuals and an associated test are proposed to detect outliers. Cook’s distance is defined to detect influential cases. The methodology is illustrated by an example from a robust design study.
