Subject: GLM Saturated Model Question



In the chapter on Analysis of Deviance on Generalized Linear Models I came across 'Saturated Model' - a model that includes as many parameters as the number of observations.

1) I am having difficulty visualising Saturated model. Can someone please give me the Saturated model in terms of Yi, X1i, X2i etc?

2) Since I am unable to visualise the saturated model, I can't appreciate the fact that the for the saturated model the fitted value is in fact the actual response value.

Thanks in advance.
