I assume you are referring to the regularization method developed by Skilling
and Gull, not Berg's method.  There is an incomplete implementation of
Skilling's Cambridge method in Applied Mathematica:Getting Started, Getting It
Done by William T. Shaw and Jason Tigg (Addison-Wesley, 1994).  I say it's
incomplete because it does not do the line search to constrain the step size
in the search subspace.  Some of the code from the book is here:,
but as far as I can tell the Maximum Entropy code is not.
