nLogLike(wpar, nbStates, bounds, parSize, data, stepDist = c("gamma",
  "weibull", "lnorm", "exp"), angleDist = c("vm", "wrpcauchy", "none"),
  angleMean = NULL, zeroInflation = FALSE, stationary = FALSE,
  knownStates = NULL)

Arguments

wpar

Vector of working parameters.

nbStates

Number of states of the HMM.

bounds

Matrix with 2 columns and as many rows as there are elements in wpar. Each row contains the lower and upper bound for the correponding parameter.

parSize

Vector of two values: number of parameters of the step length distribution, number of parameters of the turning angle distribution.

data

An object moveData.

stepDist

Name of the distribution of the step lengths (as a character string). Supported distributions are: gamma, weibull, lnorm, exp. Default: gamma.

angleDist

Name of the distribution of the turning angles (as a character string). Supported distributions are: vm, wrpcauchy. Set to "none" if the angle distribution should not be estimated. Default: vm.

angleMean

Vector of means of turning angles if not estimated (one for each state). Default: NULL (the angle mean is estimated).

zeroInflation

TRUE if the step length distribution is inflated in zero. Default: FALSE. If TRUE, initial values for the zero-mass parameters should be included in stepPar0.

stationary

FALSE if there are covariates. If TRUE, the initial distribution is considered equal to the stationary distribution. Default: FALSE.

knownStates

Vector of values of the state process which are known prior to fitting the model (if any). Default: NULL (states are not known). This should be a vector with length the number of rows of 'data'; each element should either be an integer (the value of the known states) or NA if the state is not known.

Value

The negative log-likelihood of the parameters given the data.
