    Help Needed: Multivariate Regression Using R

    I am testing the a couple of CAPM based models for my dissertation, and I have a healthy amount of stocks to regress, 5000 according to my last calculations, they’d have to be done as 75 stocks at a time, (in a portfolio). The number makes it an unrealistic task to accomplish manually, I have...

    [R – lme function] Comparing curves in longitudinal data (growth curves)

    I think my problem is best solved by the use of multi-level models. However, I’d like to confirm if what I’m doing is right, and the use of the function is right too. I work with cells (biology), by doing electrophysiology. I apply to each cell a series of currents, in 20 pA steps, ranging from...
