HI,

I’m new to Julia and looking to convert some of my workflow. I was wondering if there is an implementation of the maximum likelihood-like approach of Box and Cox (1964)?

I may be missing something, but isn’t the Box-Cox transformation rather trivial to implement? Why do you need a package for this?

ML should be easy with a generic optimization library like Optim.jl. Eg see a recent thread.

Yes, it is relatively trivial to implement. I just thought I would ask given that it’s commonly implemented in statistical packages in most data science / statistical oriented languages.

I just created a package Not registered though.

Incidentally, I like your use of `𝐱`

in code. It solves the eternal `elt`

vs `x`

vs `xs`

dilemma.

For those who are interested, I’ve updated the package:

- Ability to specify custom lambda parameter
- Ability to scale results with geometric mean for better interpretability with units
- Ability to switch between two different log-likelihood implementations
- Better README and doc strings
