arguments passed to or from other methods.
For a linear model fitted by
the effects are the uncorrelated single-degree-of-freedom values
obtained by projecting the data onto the successive orthogonal
subspaces generated by the QR decomposition during the fitting
process. The first r (the rank of the model) are associated with
coefficients and the remainder span the space of residuals (but are
not associated with particular residuals).
Empty models do not have effects.
A (named) numeric vector of the same length as
residuals, or a matrix if there were multiple responses

The first r rows are labelled by the corresponding coefficients, and the remaining rows are unlabelled. Note that in rank-deficient models the corresponding coefficients will be in a different order if pivoting occurred.
