Pagel's ``lambda'' Correlation Structure

The correlation structure from the present model is derived from the Brownian motion model by multiplying the off-diagonal elements (i.e., the covariances) by \(\lambda\). The variances are thus the same than for a Brownian motion model.

Usage
corPagel(value, phy, form = ~1, fixed = FALSE)
# S3 method for corPagel
corMatrix(object, covariate = getCovariate(object),
                   corr = TRUE, ...)
# S3 method for corPagel
coef(object, unconstrained = TRUE, …)
Arguments
value

the (initial) value of the parameter \(\lambda\).

phy

an object of class "phylo".

form

(ignored).

fixed

a logical specifying whether gls should estimate \(\lambda\) (the default) or keep it fixed.

object

an (initialized) object of class "corPagel".

covariate

(ignored).

corr

a logical value specifying whether to return the correlation matrix (the default) or the variance-covariance matrix.

unconstrained

a logical value. If TRUE (the default), the coefficients are returned in unconstrained form (the same used in the optimization algorithm). If FALSE the coefficients are returned in ``natural'', possibly constrained, form.

further arguments passed to or from other methods.

Value

an object of class "corPagel", the coefficients from an object of this class, or the correlation matrix of an initialized object of this class. In most situations, only corPagel will be called by the user.
