Generate a list of model setups for the function estimate.evolutionary.model.

Share:

Description

The function generates a list of models that will be used by the function
estimate.evolutionary.model. A minimum example list will be list(list(evolmodel="BM")).

Usage

1

Details

The function should really be a hidden one but is left available for the user as an example how such a list of models should be generated.

Value

A list with different models is returned. Each element of the list is a list with the following fields.

  • evolmodel The evolutionary model, it may take one of the three values "BM" (Brownian motion model), "ouch" (OUOU model), "mvslouch" (OUBM model).

  • Atype The class of the A matrix, ignored if evolmodel equals "BM". Otherwise it can take one of the following values: "SingleValueDiagonal", "Diagonal", "UpperTri", "LowerTri", "SymmetricPositiveDefinite", "Symmetric", "DecomposablePositive",
    "DecomposableNegative", "DecomposableReal", "Invertible", "TwoByTwo".

  • Syytype The class of the A matrix, ignored if evolmodel equals "BM". Otherwise it can take one of the following values: "SingleValueDiagonal", "Diagonal", "UpperTri", "LowerTri", "Symmetric", "Any".

  • diagA Should the diagonal of A be forced to be positive (TRUE), negative (FALSE) or the sign free to vary (NULL)
