## S3 method for class 'jointModel'
anova(object, object2, test = TRUE, 
   process = c("both", "Longitudinal", "Event"), L = NULL, ...)

Arguments

object

an object inheriting from class jointModel, nested in object2.

object2

an object inheriting from class jointModel.

test

logical; if TRUE the likelihood ratio test is performed.

process

for which of the two submodels to produce the marginal Wald tests table.

L

a numeric matrix of appropriate dimensions defining the contrasts of interest.

...

additional arguments; currently none is used.

Value

An object of class aov.jointModel with components,

nam0

the name of object.

L0

the log-likelihood under the null hypothesis (object).

aic0

the AIC value for the model given by object.

bic0

the BIC value for the model given by object.

nam1

the name of object2.

L1

the log-likelihood under the alternative hypothesis (object2).

aic1

the AIC value for the model given by object2.

bic1

the BIC value for the model given by object2.

df

the degrees of freedom for the test (i.e., the difference in the number of parameters).

LRT

the value of the Likelihood Ratio Test statistic (returned if test = TRUE).

p.value

the p-value of the test (returned if test = TRUE).

aovTab.Y

a data.frame with the marginal Wald tests for the longitudinal process; produced only when object2 is missing.

aovTab.T

a data.frame with the marginal Wald tests for the event process; produced only when object2 is missing.

aovTab.L

a data.frame with the marginal Wald tests for the user-defined contrasts matrix; produced only when object2 is missing and L is not NULL.

Warning

The code minimally checks whether the models are nested! The user is responsible to supply nested models in order the LRT to be valid.
