#N:ubc-medgen:1300003:000:1243 ubc-medgen!naomi Jan 10 12:33:00 1983 We at UBC Medgen are the VAX/UNIX distributors for GLIM. As well, we have adapted GLIM and the SGLIM interface to work (under our version of UNIX, f77, etc., etc. If anyone out there is interested let me know by computer mail (if you can figure out how to reach me) or paper mail (Canada Post) willing: Naomi Altman Dept. of Medical Genetics 2075 Wesbrook Mall UBC Vancouver, BC, Canada V6T 1W5 GLIM, for the uninitiated is a package for doing generalized linear models - generalized in this case meaning that 1. the underlying distribution may be Poisson, Binomial..., rather than normal 2. y = f(xB) where xB is the dot product of matrix x and parameter vector B, and f is known to be exponential, inverse, or whatever. This allows logistic, probit, log-linear, survival, etc. regression models. GLIM is available from Numerical Algorithms Group Ltd. (NAG) NAG Central Office Mayfield House 256 Banbury Road OXFORD OX2 7DE England and must be ordered directly from them. (They then forward the request to us, if it is for VAX/UNIX, and to another appropriate site otherwise.) I don't recall the exact cost, but it was nominal - just enough to cover the paper-handling, copying, and mailing.
