Recently, I am using regression analysis to do a geophysics study. Now the study is almost done. I start to write my report. I want to add some history of the regression technique itself. But I am far from an expert of statistics. So I have no idea about what I should write.

Therefore, I want to ask whether anyone can recommend me some articles about the history of regression analysis. How it is invented... How it is developed in history... What is the current topic about this technique... etc...

Or if you have suggestions on how I should finish the regression part of my report, it is highly appreciated.

Thx in advance,
