Hello folks,

many multivariate anayses (e.g., structural equation modeling) require
multivariate normal distributions.
Real data, however, most often significantly depart from the multinormal
distribution. Some researchers (e.g., Yuan et al., 2000) have proposed a
multivariate transformation of the variables.

Can you tell me, if and how such a transformation can be handeled in R?

Thanks in advance.
With best regards

applications to structural equation modeling. British Journal of
Mathematical and Statistical Psychology, 53, 31–50.
