Description

The main purpose of this package is to allow the user of the GAMLSS models to fit mixture distributions.

Details

Package: gamlss.mx
Type: Package
Version: 0.0
Date: 2005-08-3
License: GPL (version 2 or later)

This package has two main function the gamlssMX() which is loosely based on the package flexmix of R and the function gamlssNP() which is based on the npmlreg package of Jochen Einbeck, Ross Darnell and John Hinde (2006) which in turns is based on several GLIM4 macros originally written by Murray Aitkin and Brian Francis. It also contains the function gqz() which is written by Nick Sofroniou and the function gauss.quad() written by Gordon Smyth.
