Arguments

mu.link

the link function for mu

sigma.link

the link function for sigma

nu.link

the link function for nu

tau.link

the link function for tau

x

the x variable

q

vector of quantiles

p

vector of probabilities

lower.tail

logical; if TRUE (default), probabilities are P[X <= x] otherwise, P[X > x].

log.p

logical; if TRUE, probabilities p are given as log(p).

log

logical; if TRUE, probabilities p are given as log(p).

n

the number of observations

mu

the mu parameter

sigma

the sigma parameter

nu

the nu parameter

tau

the tau parameter

type

permitted values are 2 (Binomial), 3, 4, and 5

model

a gamlss multinomial fitted model

Details

GAMLSS is in general not suitable for multinomial regression. Nevertheless multinomial regression can be fitted within GAMLSS if the response variable y has less than five categories. The function here provide the facilities to do so. The functions MN3(), MN4() and MN5() fit multinomial responses with 3, 4 and 5 categories respectively. The function MULTIN() can be used instead of codeMN3(), MN4() and MN5() by specifying the number of levels of the response. Note that MULTIN(2) will produce a binomial fit.

Value

returns a gamlss.family object which can be used to fit a binomial distribution in the gamlss() function.
