Calculate Akaike weights for model averaging


Akaike weights are calculated based on the relative expected Kullback-Leibler information as specified by Burnham and Anderson (2004).


aw(object, ...)

## S3 method for class 'mkinfit'
aw(object, ...)

## S3 method for class 'mmkin'
aw(object, ...)



An mmkin column object, containing two or more mkinfit models that have been fitted to the same data, or an mkinfit object. In the latter case, further mkinfit objects fitted to the same data should be specified as dots arguments.


Not used in the method for mmkin column objects, further mkinfit objects in the method for mkinfit objects.
