Thanks for Andrew Robinson's suggestion. 

I am sorry that I have been looking for the book Wood (2006) "Generalized
Additive Models: Introduction with R" for a long time in my univerity and
book stores, but I failed to find one. I think it may take a long time to
buy one from the Internet, and we are required to submit the master thesis

Could any one help me if you know other references or have knowledge about

I will be very very thankful. 

Sincerely yours,
