J

vector of predators caught in each time period

I

vector of number of days all traps were left out in a given time period

EM

boolean; whether or not EM algorithm is used

em_maxiter

integer specifying max number of EM iterations

BALANCED

boolean; whether or not data are BALANCED

Details

There are 2*S*T free parameters under this hypothesis.
