GLMs, which were proposed by Nelder and Wedderburn (1972) and were later carefully discussed in McCullagh and Searle (2001), contain an extensive family of models and techniques helpful in data analysis with non-normal errors and constitute one of the most important statistical tools used today. Like ordinary linear models, the observations in GLMs are assumed to be independent. However, the structure of the data can sometimes seriously violate this assumption.
