Transform Smooth Constructs to Random Effects

The transformer function takes a bamlss.frame object and transforms all smooth.constructs into a random effects representation. Note that this is only possible for smooth terms with a single smoothing variance. The function is based on function smooth2random.

Keywords
regression, smooth
Usage
randomize(x)
Arguments
x

Object returned from function bamlss.frame.

Details

The decomposition is achieved by a spectral decomposition of the penalty and design matrix by finding a basis of the null space of the penalty matrix. This feature is used, e.g., for the JAGS sampler function. For more details see also jagam.

Value

A transformed bamlss.frame. To each smooth.construct model term an element named "Xf", the fixed effects design matrix, and an element "rand$Xr", the random effects design matrix, is added. In addition, for re-transforming parameters elements "trans.U" and "trans.D" are supplied. See also function smooth2random.
