These functions can be used to change the size of a model's fixed effects, its random effect variance/covariance matrices, or its residual variance. This gives you more control over simulations from the model.

New values for VarCorr
are interpreted as variances and covariances, not standard deviations and
correlations. New values for sigma
and scale
are interpreted on the standard deviation scale.
This means that both VarCorr(object)<-VarCorr(object)
and sigma(object)<-sigma(object)
leave object
unchanged, as you would expect.
sigma<-
will only change the residual standard deviation,
whereas scale<-
will affect both sigma
and VarCorr
.
These function can be used to change the value of individual parameters, such as a single fixed effect coefficient, using standard R subsetting commands.
getData
if you want to modify the model's data.
