I hope somebody can help.
A student of mine is doing a study on Measurement Error models
(errors-in-variables, total least squares, etc.). I have an old
reference to a "multi archive" that contains leiv3: Programs for best line fitting with errors in both coordinates.
(The date is October 1989, by B.D. Ripley et al.)
I have done a search for something similar in R withour success. Has this been implemented in a R-package, possibly under some sort of assumptions about variances. I would lke my student to apply some regression techniques to data that fit this profile. Any help is much appreciated.
(If I have not done my search more carefully - my apologies.)
