    Linear modelling

    Hi, I need some help with a modeling query: I have fit 100,000 linear models: M ~ age + age^2, M is the frequency. I found 2,000 models were significant, but would like to narrow it down to find the most ‘extreme’ cases. Is this possible? Does anyone have any suggestions or any references...
