The msm
function returns a list with the following
components. These are intended for developers and confident
users. To extract results from fitted model objects, functions such
as qmatrix.msm
or print.msm
should be used
instead.
call 
The original call to 
Qmatrices 
A list of matrices. The first component, labelled

QmatricesSE 
The standard error matrices corresponding to

QmatricesL,QmatricesU 
Corresponding lower and upper symmetric
confidence limits, of width 0.95 unless specified otherwise by the

Ematrices 
A list of matrices. The first component, labelled

EmatricesSE 
The standard error matrices corresponding to 
EmatricesL,EmatricesU 
Corresponding lower and upper symmetric
confidence limits, of width 0.95 unless specified otherwise by the

minus2loglik 
Minus twice the maximised loglikelihood. 
deriv 
Derivatives of the minus twice loglikelihood at its maximum. 
estimates 
Vector of untransformed maximum likelihood estimates
returned from 
estimates.t 
Vector of transformed maximum likelihood estimates with intensities and probabilities on their natural scales. 
fixedpars 
Indices of 
center 
Indicator for whether the estimation was performed with covariates centered on their means in the data. 
covmat 
Covariance matrix corresponding to 
ci 
Matrix of confidence intervals corresponding to 
opt 
Return value from the optimisation routine (such as

foundse 
Logical value indicating whether the Hessian was positivedefinite at the supposed maximum of the likelihood. If not, the covariance matrix of the parameters is unavailable. In these cases the optimisation has probably not converged to a maximum. 
data 
A list giving the data used for the model fit, for use in
postprocessing. To extract it, use the methods
The format of this element changed in version
1.4 of msm, so that it now contains a
