Two areas of research – longitudinal data analysis and kernel machines – have large, but mostly distinct, literatures. This article shows explicitly that both fields have much in common with each other. In particular, many popular longitudinal data fitting procedures are special types of kernel machines. These connections have the potential to provide fruitful cross-fertilization between longitudinal data analytic and kernel machine methodology. © 2009, Institute of Mathematical Statistics.
