Geometric Descriptions for Hierarchical Log-Linear Models

by Chong Sun Hong, Hyun Jip Choi, and Min Gweon Oh .

Abstract: We suggest a geometrical method to describe the test results of the hierarchical log-linear models. In order to represent the relationship of a set of hierarchical log-linear models, some shapes of right-angled triangle, tetrahedron, and polyhedron are applied to draw. These geometric descriptions can be applied to the model selection method for given hierarchical models.

Key Words: Likelihood ratio statistics, Model selection, Polyhedron plot, Right-angled plot, Triangle plot
