##### Estimate log Transformation Parameter

Find and optionally plot the marginal (profile) likelihood for alpha for a transformation model of the form log(y + alpha) ~ x1 + x2 + ....

Keywords
models, hplot, regression
##### Usage
logtrans(object, ...)## S3 method for class 'default':
logtrans(object, \dots, alpha = seq(0.5, 6, by = 0.25) - min(y),
plotit = TRUE, interp =, xlab = "alpha",
ylab = "log Likelihood")## S3 method for class 'formula':
logtrans(object, data, \dots)## S3 method for class 'lm':
logtrans(object, \dots)
##### Arguments
object
Fitted linear model object, or formula defining the untransformed model that is y ~ x1 + x2 + .... The function is generic.
...
If object is a formula, this argument may specify a data frame as for lm.
alpha
Set of values for the transformation parameter, alpha.
plotit
Should plotting be done?
interp
Should the marginal log-likelihood be interpolated with a spline approximation? (Default is TRUE if plotting is to be done and the number of real points is less than 100.)
xlab
as for plot.
ylab
as for plot.
data
optional data argument for lm fit.
##### Value

• List with components x (for alpha) and y (for the marginal log-likelihood values).

##### Side Effects

A plot of the marginal log-likelihood is produced, if requested, together with an approximate mle and 95% confidence interval.
