Linear Statistical Models and Beyond

In this talk we briefly introduce the very basic statistical models and some
of their possible extensions. We start the presentation from the discussion
of linear regression models and then generalize them by relaxing the
normality assumption. Extensions will be made when modeling other population characteristics than the population mean, or when the structure of the statistical data forces us to do so.
