enDerivative Estimation Methods for 3 time occasions?
http://openmx.psyc.virginia.edu/thread/3946
<p>I am planning on using on using multivariate latent differential equation modeling for my MA thesis. I will have the opportunity to plan for the parameters, methods, and measurements required to do so. But currently, I am attempting to utilize one of these derivative estimation methods on some data I currently have. Specifically, I have 3 measurements of PTSD, Cortisol, and Coping Self-Efficacy. The downside is that there are 50 participants and the occasions are not equally spaced (e.g., Time 1 is 1 week after traumatic event, Time 2 is 1 month, and Time 3 is 3 months). Is there a way I can still use this data to create a dynamic (DiffEq) multivariate model to better understand the process of this system of variables?</p>
<p>If not, I understand. From my understanding of reading Boker's and Deboeck's articles and book chapters, this should not work. I just felt like it could not hurt to ask. Any help is appreciated :)</p>

<p>Here is a very basic script for a univariate second order differential equation that Pascal Deboeck and I wrote yesterday. This is the infamous damped linear oscillator.</p>
<p>In order to give you some sample data to run it on, I have attached a data file and used a read.table file that accesses the data file in this post using its URL.</p>
<p>If you have comments, I'd like to hear them!</p>
