Yee and Wild have presented additive extensions to multivariate regression models including generalized estimating equations. The back-bone of their methods was a vector spline, which was solved by direct solution. A back-fitting solution to the vector spline problem is presented here, with the implication that existing generalized additive model software can, with moderate effort, be modified to implement multivariate models.
