Creates an instance of the `S4`

class, `AceEstimate`

instantiating arguments set the parameter values estimated by the ACE model.

1 2 | ```
CreateAceEstimate(aSquared, cSquared, eSquared, caseCount,
details=list(), unityTolerance = 1e-11)
``` |

`aSquared` |
The proportion of variability due to a shared genetic influence (typically represented as a^2, or sometimes h^2). |

`cSquared` |
The proportion of variability due to shared common environmental influence. |

`eSquared` |
The proportion of variability due to unexplained/residual/error influence. |

`caseCount` |
The number of cases used to estimate the model. |

`details` |
A |

`unityTolerance` |
Specifies how close the the sum of the ACE components should be to one, to be considered properly scaled to one. |

The contents of the `details`

list depends on the underlying estimation routine. For example, when the ACE model is estimated with a DF analysis, the output is an `lm`

object, because the `lm`

function was used (ie, the basical general linear model). Alternatively, if the user specified the `lavaan`

package should estimate that ACE model, the output is a `lavaan`

object.

An S4 object of `AceEstimate-class`
