Can't we write the model as P=a-d/1+(a-d). This is additive. Why do we need
I know it will be awkward when a=d but the multiplicative form has this problem
too when d=0.

Comment: Yes, that is the multiplicative form of the Rasch model. Georg
Rasch uses it in his book, "Probabilistic Models".
If we want to transform multiplicative numbers, like a and d, into
additive numbers, then we take logarithms .... as Georg Rasch himself
does in his book.
