Hi there,
I'm using the tweedie distribution package and I cant figure out how to run a model using an identity link. I know I can use a log link by having link.power=0 and I think identity would be link.power=1, but I'm not sure. Furthermore when I try running it with link.power=1 it requires starting values which I cant manage to give appropriately so I'm not sure if its actually an identity link its using. I can't find this info on the help page and I was wondering if somebody could give me a hand.
Thanks a lot.
