## S3 method for class 'JMbayes'
coef(object, process = c("Longitudinal", "Event"), ...)

## S3 method for class 'JMbayes'
fixef(object, process = c("Longitudinal", "Event"), ...)

## S3 method for class 'JMbayes'
confint(object, parm = c("all", "Longitudinal", "Event"), ...)

Arguments

object

an object inheriting from class JMbayes.

process

for which submodel (i.e., linear mixed model or survival model) to extract the estimated coefficients.

parm

for which submodel (i.e., linear mixed model or survival model) to extract credible intervals.

...

additional arguments; currently none is used.

Details

When process = "Event" both methods return the same output. However, for process = "Longitudinal", the coef() method returns the subject-specific coefficients, whereas fixef() only the fixed effects.

Value

A numeric vector or a matrix of the estimated parameters or confidence intervals for the fitted model.
