Welcome to getting structural equation modeling done fast.
umx is an R package with one purpose: helping you get things done with Structural Equation Modeling
using OpenMx. The design goals are to make SEM quicker and easier to implement, update, and publish.
There is a forum for Q&A-style discussion
- Collected introductory umx articles
- Collected in-depth RAM function articles
- Collected articles on twin modeling in umx
- Collected technical articles (parallel, speed, matrix-algebra)
- Gallery of Example Models!
- The umx principle (1-minute read)
- Installing umx (60 seconds)
- Build & run a model in a minute!
- What you expect is what you get
