I have been trying to generate generalized additive models (GAM) in R. For some reason, my commands are not working. For instance, a command such as fit <- gam.fit(data[,-1], data[1]); does not run. What is correct way to generate GAM models in R? Can someone give an explicit example of a GAM model. And are there other softwares other than R that can generate GAM models.
