VarCorr: Extract Variance-Covariance Matrix

Description

This function extracts the variance-covariance matrix of the random effects from a fitted lqmm object.

Usage

1
2
## S3 method for class 'lqmm'
VarCorr(x, sigma = NULL, rdig = NULL)

Arguments

x

an object of class "lqmm".

sigma, rdig

not used.

Details

This function returns the variance or the variance-covariance matrix of the random effects. It calls covHandling to manage the output of lqmm.fit.gs or lqmm.fit.df. A post-fitting approximation to the nearest positive (semi)definite matrix (Higham, 2002) is applied if necessary. The generic function VarCorr is imported from the nlme package (Pinheiro et al, 2014).
