`formula` |
a symbolic description for the model to be estimated, |

`treat` |
a symbolic description for the treatment model to be estimated, |

`data` |

`subset` |

`na.action` |
a function which indicates what should happen when the data contain NAs. The default is set by the na.action setting of options, and is na.fail if that is unset. The ‘factory-fresh’ default is na.omit. Another possible value is NULL, no action. Value na.exclude can be useful. |

`method` |
maximisation method (from maxLik package), currently either "NR" (for Newton-Raphson), "BFGS" (for Broyden-Fletcher-Goldfarb-Shanno), "BFGSR" (for the BFGS algorithm implemented in R), "BHHH" (for Berndt-Hall-Hall-Hausman), "SANN" (for Simulated ANNealing), "CG" (for Conjugate Gradients), or "NM" (for Nelder-Mead). Lower-case letters (such as "nr" for Newton-Raphson) are allowed. If missing, a suitable method is selected automatically. See |

The endogenous treatment-regression model is composed of an equation for the outcome: yj = xj.Beta + delta.tj + uj and an equation for the endogenous treatmen: tj = 1 (if wj.gamma + ej > 0) | 0 (otherwise) where xj are the covariates used to model the outcome, wj are the covariates used to model treatment assignment, and the error terms uj and ej are bivariate normal with mean zero and covariance matrix: |sigma^2 rho.sigma | |rho.sigma 1 |
