Multinomial Regression

A multinomial logit model can be built for the classification task where there are more than two classes (and also when there are just two classes Todo: explain why not?). The multinom function (from the nnet, or neural network, package), can be used. This function is found in the nnet package primarily because the algorithm is the same as that which is used to build a single hidden-layer neural network (), as discussed in Section 19.
