Generalized additive models, Advanced Statistics

Models which make use of the smoothing techniques such as locally weighted regression to identify and represent the possible non-linear relationships between the explanatory and the response variables as an alternative to the considering polynomial terms or searching for the suitable transformations of response and explanatory variables both. With these models, the link function of the expected value of the response variable is modeled as the sum of several smooth functions of the explanatory variables rather than in terms of explanatory variables themselves.
