Hi,

I would like to know the relation between the sentence in GEMACO and the position of each beta in the output file.

Here I let two examples, if you might clarify them it would be very useful to understand how it works.

For instance, leaving out the EVENT stuff, it could be in GEPAT:

INITIAL STATE=p*

TRANSITION=

*-p

-*p

--p

In GEMACO:

Scenario 1)

IS[i+t*x(1)]

TRANSITION1[shortcut1+t(1 7)+[t([2:6;8:13]).[i+t*x(8)]]]

where shortcut1 represents a group with two levels

In total, how many betas for these sentences? (I guess six), which would be the correspondence between each beta position in the output and the GEMACO sentence?

May you complete this?

beta1= Intercept (initial state)

beta2= covariate1 slope (initial state)

beta3=...

and for Scenario 2)

IS[i+t*x(1)]

TRANSITION1[f+t(1 7)+[t([2:6;8:13]).[i+t*x(8)]]]

Again I would expect six betas, may you complete this?

beta1= intercept (initial state)

beta2= covariate1 slope (initial state)

beta3= ...
