Description

Check characteristics of models: whether a model fit corresponds to a linear (LMM), generalized linear (GLMM), or nonlinear (NLMM) mixed model, and whether a linear mixed model has been fitted by REML or not (isREML(x) is always FALSE for GLMMs and NLMMs).

Arguments

x

a fitted model.

...
