some methods for this generic require additional arguments. None are used in this method. |
For the random effects model y = X beta
+ Zb + e, let s^2 be the variance of the error term
e.
Let A = sP be the variance of the random effects
b. There is a computational advantage to solving the problem
in terms of P instead of A, and that is what is
stored in the returned lmekin object.
The VarCorr
function returns elements of P; the print
and summary functions report values of A.
Pinhiero and Bates call P the precision factor.
the fixed effects are a vector and vcov returns their variance/covariance matrix. The random effects are a list with one element for each random effect. The ranef component contains the coefficients and VarCorr the estimated variance/covariance matrix. The logLik method returns the loglikelihood along with its degrees of freedom.
