Generic Accessor Function for Model Parameters

Extract model parameters and their covariance matrix as well as degrees of freedom (if available) from a fitted model.

modelparm(model, coef., vcov., df, ...)
a fitted model, for example an object returned by lm, glm, aov,
an accessor function for the model parameters.
an accessor function for the covariance matrix of the model parameters.
an optional specification of the degrees of freedom to be used in subsequent computations.
additional arguments, currently ignored.

One can't expect coef and vcov methods for arbitrary models to return a vector of $p$ fixed effects model parameters (coef) and corresponding $p p$ covariance matrix (vcov).

The coef. and vcov. arguments can be used to define modified coef or vcov methods for a specific model. Methods for lmer and survreg objects are available (internally).

For objects inheriting from class lm the degrees of freedom are determined from model and the corresponding multivariate $t$ distribution is used by all methods to glht objects. By default, the asymptotic multivariate normal distribution is used in all other cases unless df is specified by the user.
