A (t − 1) (4) 40 Wu and Dewey in which A (t) is the time lead matrix and A (t − 1) is the time lag matrix. The Λ-matrix can be solved by inverting A (t − 1) and multiplying both sides of Eq. 4 by the inverse: Λ = A (t) . A (t − 1)−1 (5) Computationally, all that is needed to calculate the Λ-matrix is a matrix inversion routine, a common tool in any matrix algebra software package. However, standard methods cannot be used on this problem for two main reasons. First, most methods invert square matrices.

7. Conclusion Microarray technologies have empowered novice users with the ability to assay changes in gene expression at the whole-genome level. There is little doubt that microarray results will lead to new and entirely unexpected results, and pursuing such experiments will be worthwhile for many investigators. However, there are several concerns that should be heeded. Microarray experiments are expensive and they can be quite labor-intensive. In addition, the data that they produce are quite complex.

This is especially true when dealing with limited data with large statistical errors, as found in most microarray studies. Second, the linear model may act as a first approximation to a more complicated nonlinear expression. Any nonlinear function can be “linearized” through a power series expansion, and the linear model can be considered the first term in such an expansion. At this stage of sophistication and data quality, we are primarily seeking phenomenological connections, rather than quantitative mathematical connections.
