Arguments

...

List of arguments (see Note).

Note

merPredD(...) is a short form of new("merPredD", ...) to create a new merPredD object and the ... must be named arguments, (X, Zt, Lambdat, Lind, theta,n):

X:

dense model matrix for the fixed-effects parameters, to be stored in the X field.

Zt:

transpose of the sparse model matrix for the random effects. It is stored in the Zt field.

Lambdat:

transpose of the sparse lower triangular relative variance factor (stored in the Lambdat field).

Lind:

integer vector of the same length as the x slot in the Lambdat field. Its elements should be in the range 1 to the length of the theta field.

theta:

numeric vector of variance component parameters (stored in the theta field).

n:

sample size, usually nrow(X).
