Description Usage Arguments Details References Examples

Description

These functions construct different parts of matrix components. They are used internally. If you are interested in the weights of a model fitted using rfh please try to use weights.fitrfh on that object.

Details

matU computes U. U is the matrix containing only the diagonal elements of V. This function returns a list of functions which can be called to compute specific transformations of U.

matTrace computes the trace of a matrix.

matB computes the matrix B which is used to compute the weights in the pseudo linearised representation of the REBLUP.

matBConst returns a function with one argument, u, to compute the matrix B. This function is used internally to compute B in the fixed point algorithm.

matA computes the matrix A which is used to compute the weights in the pseudo linearized representation of the REBLUP.

matAConst returns a function with one argument, beta, to compute the matrix A. This function is used internally to compute A in the fixed point algorithm for beta.

matW returns a matrix containing the weights as they are defined for the pseudo linear form, such that matW %*% y is the REBLUP.

matWbc returns a matrix containing the weights as they are defined for the pseudo linear form, such that matWbc %*% y is the bias-corrected REBLUP. c is a multiplyer for the standard deviation.

matTZ constructs the Z matrix in a linear mixed model with autocorrelated random effects.

matTZ1 constructs the Z1 matrix in a linear mixed model with autocorrelated random effects.
