is.parallel: Parallelism Constraint Matrices

Description Usage Arguments Details Value See Also Examples

Description

Returns a logical vector from a test of whether an object such as a matrix or VGLM object corresponds to a parallelism assumption.

Usage

1
2
is.parallel.matrix(object, ...)
is.parallel.vglm(object, type = c("term", "lm"), ...)

Arguments

object

an object such as a constraint matrix or a vglm object.

type

passed into constraints.

...

additional optional arguments. Currently unused.

Details

These functions may be useful for categorical models such as propodds, cumulative, acat, cratio, sratio, multinomial.

Value

A vector of logicals, testing whether each constraint matrix is a one-column matrix of ones. Note that parallelism can still be thought of as holding if the constraint matrix has a non-zero but constant values, however, this is currently not implemented. No checking is done that the constraint matrices have the same number of rows.

See Also

constraints, vglm.
