Generalised Additive Models for Location Scale and Shape

Functions for fitting the Generalized Additive Models for Location Scale and Shape introduced by Rigby and Stasinopoulos (2005), . The models use a distributional regression approach where all the parameters of the conditional distribution of the response variable are modelled using explanatory variables.

Those are the function for creating the package gamlss
