Actually, that would restrict each coefficient to be between 0 and 0.95 ... _______________________ Jorge Eduardo Pérez Pérez On Tue, Mar 27, 2012 at 11:51 PM, Perez Perez Jorge Eduardo <perez.jorge@ur.edu.co> wrote: > You can modify example 6 of the FAQ you posted to restrict your > coefficients to add up to 0.95 and to be between 0 and 1.
