##### Fit Generalized Linear Mixed Models via PQL

Fit a GLMM model with multivariate normal random effects, using Penalized Quasi-Likelihood.

Keywords
models
##### Usage
GLMM(formula, family, data, random, ...)
##### Arguments
formula
a two-sided linear model formula giving fixed-effects part of the model.
family
a GLM family, see glm.
data
an optional data frame used as the first place to find variables in the formulae.
random
A formula or named list of formulae describing the random effects.
...
Optional further arguments such as subset and na.action.
##### Details

Additional arguments, some of them standard in model-fitting functions, can be passed to GLMM. [object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object]

##### Value

• An object of class "lme": see ssclme-class.

##### synopsis

GLMM(formula, family, data, random, method = c("PQL", "Laplace"), control = list(), subset, weights, na.action, offset, model = TRUE, x = FALSE, y = FALSE, ...)
