Hi PharmCat

❝ I suppose hat this value come from QR decomposition with pivoting of rank deficient X matrix. So real value = 0. Can residual of random variable be equal zero? - No => bias.


I disagree. In the model ε = 0. However in the fit, the sum of residuals is only asymptotically 0. We shouldn’t speak of bias when we obtain something sufficiently close to the numeric resolution of the machine.
