Page 285 - A method is presented for the analysis of data representing functions of two variables, when the response can be tabulated in a rectangular array. The procedure is based on a partitioning of the row by column interaction effects into a sum of terms, each of which is the product of a row factor by a column factor. The factors in each term are estimated by a method involving the extraction of characteristic roots. The method contains as special cases a number of procedures used for the handling of...
