Between-group synchrony for heteroscedastic compound symmetry model


The function calculates the between-group synchrony (a^) and standard error (SE) for heteroscedastic compound symmetry model (mHeCS).





a class "lme" compound symmetry model (mHeCS) produced by dendro.varcov with homoscedastic equals FALSE.


The function calculates between-group synchrony for heteroscedastic compound symmetry models (mHeCS).


The function returns a matrix containing between-group synchrony and SE for each combination of varGroup levels. This function is used internally in sync.
