The following two files describe and contain the
S-plus code used to compute the IBEE

and Independence estimates for the Meron vegetation data in
"Analyzing Spatially

Distributed Binary Data Using Independent-Block Estimating
Equations" by Oman,

Landsman, Carmel and Kadmon.

The code may be used for binary responses from
an equally-spaced rectangular grid,

and uses an exponential covariance function for the latent normal
field (it may be

easily adapted to handle other types of covariance functions).

The S-plus statements are in a number of
programs ( ibee.1 - ibee.6) which are to be

run sequentially. Before running them, the user must prepare
data matrices and define

a number of parameters, as described in the comments of
ibee.1. The programs use a

number of functions, whose code is also available.

ibee.readme.rtf
Contains
a brief description of the programs, the names of the functions,

and the calling sequence for the functions.

ibee.progs.rtf
Contains
the code for ibee.1 - ibee.6 and the functions, as one long
file.

The first
line of each program or function is in boldface, and the last line

is
followed by a blank line, in order to simplify copying and pasting
into

the Splus
window. The programs and functions have numerous

comments.
