Matrix algebra within TreeAge?
I am new to TreeAge and in the beginning stages of developing a microsimulation model. My plan is to generate transition probabilities (TPs) between 5 states as a function of individual-level characteristics using a multinomial logit model estimated on survey data. The two waves of the survey were conducted three years apart, so the TPs represent 3 year transitions. We intend to use a cycle length of one year, so we need to convert the 3y TPs to 1y TPs by taking the cube root of the 3Y TP matrix. Because the TPs are functions of individual-level characteristics, some of which vary over time, we will need to do this matrix algebra for each individual at each cycle. Is it possible to do such a thing within TreeAge, and would doing so slow the model down to the point where it would be impractical to simulate many individuals over many cycles?
Thanks in advance for any insight you can provide.
