Generalized Additive Models are a very nice and effective way of fitting Linear Models which depends on some smooth and flexible Non linear functions fitted on some predictors to capture Non linear relationships in the data.Best part is that they lead to interpretable Models.

Generalized Additive Models The next figure regards a data set giving a series of measurements of head acceleration in a simulated motorcycle accident 5 Time is in milliseconds, acceleration in g. Here we have data that are probably not going to be captured with simple transformations of the predictors.

Generalized Additive Models (GAM)¶. Generalized Additive Models allow for penalized estimation of smooth terms in generalized linear models. See Module Reference for commands and arguments.

Generalized additive models consist of a random component, an additive component, and a link function that relates these two components to each other. The response , the random component, is assumed to have a density in the exponential family. where is called the natural parameter and is the scale parameter.

An introduction to generalized additive models (GAMs) is provided, with an emphasis on generalization from familiar linear models. It makes extensive use of the mgcv package in R. Discussion includes common approaches, standard extensions, and relations to other techniques. More technical modeling details are described and demonstrated as well.

Generalised additive models (GAMs): an introduction Many data in the environmental sciences do not fit simple linear models and are best described by “wiggly models”, also known as Generalised Additive Models (GAMs).

1 - Introduction to Generalized Additive Models In this chapter, you will learn how Generalized additive models work and how to use flexible, nonlinear functions to model data without over-fitting. You will learn to use the gam() function in the mgcv package, and how to build multivariate models that mix nonlinear, linear, and categorical effects to data.

13.2 Generalized Additive Models In the development of generalized linear models, we use the link function g to relate the conditional mean µ(x) to the linear predictor η(x). But really nothing in what we were doing required η to be linear in x. In particular, it all works perfectly well if η is an additive function of x. We form the ...

In 2006 I published a book called Generalized Additive Models: An Introduction with R , which aims to introduce GAMs as penalized GLMs, and Generalized Additive Mixed Models as examples of generalized linear mixed models. It also serves as a useful reference for the mgcv package in R.
