Respected Sir,

           I am working on Hidden Markov Models for count data. My data consist of number of new infectives
in a ward per month. I have data for about 50 months. How can I fit a Hidden Markon Model to my data.
I am using 'repeated' package('hidden' and 'chidden' arguments). I would like to know how can I estimate
the initial values of the parameters(mu and pgamma). I have a 27 state Markov Chain.Can you tell me a standard
 book on HMM which have the corresponding R codes.    I will be grateful for the help extended. Thanking You,
Yours Faithfully,
