ANOVA and Regression

A powerful procedure to obtain more information on the quality of a regression model is the analysis of variances (ANOVA). The idea behind ANOVA is to split the variances within a model into several parts, which then can be set in relationship to each other, thus uncovering facts about the model. ANOVA can thus be used to check the validity a model, and the goodness (or, lack) of fit. Basically we have to distinguish between two cases:

The second case is the more powerful and allows the collection of further information on the model involved.

The general scheme of the breakdown of errors is as follows
