csbet.het.aSE: Between-group synchrony for heteroscedastic compound symmetry...

Description Usage Arguments Details Value Author(s) References See Also Examples

Description

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

Usage

1

Arguments

model

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

Details

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

Value

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