Abstract

In applied scientific areas such as economics, finance, biology, and medicine, it is often required to find the relationship between a set of independent variables (predictors) and a set of response variables (i.e., outcomes of an experiment). If we model individual outcomes separately, we potentially miss information of the correlation among outcomes. Therefore, it is desirable to model these outcomes simultaneously by multivariate linear regressions.

Moreover, by applying the likelihood fusion model to real data we classify the drugs into five groups.
