View source: R/potthoff.r

Description

potthoff fits the Potthoff and Roy repeated measurements growth curve model with unstructured covariance matrix to completely balanced data.

Usage

1
2
potthoff(response, x = NULL, ccov = NULL, times = NULL, torder = 0,
  orthogonal = TRUE)

Arguments

response

A matrix or dataframe of response values.

x

A matrix defining the complete intersubject differences or a Wilkinson and Rogers formula that will create one.

ccov

A matrix of columns of the baseline covariates to be actually fitted, with one row per individual or a W&R formula that will create one.

times

A vector of unequally spaced times when they are the same for all individuals. Not necessary if equally spaced.

torder

Order of the polynomial in time to be fitted. If non-numeric, the full model in time is fitted.

orthogonal

If TRUE, uses orthogonal polynomials for time, otherwise only centres times at their mean.

Value

A list of class potthoff is returned.
