Algorithms for approximate conditional inference

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This paper presents a method for listing the sample space for a conditional distribution in a discrete generalized linear model. This tabulation is used in conjunction with saddlepoint methods to approximate the associated conditional probabilities. These probabilities are used to calculate conditional p-values.
