logLik.lme

Log-Likelihood of an lme Object

If REML=FALSE, returns the log-likelihood value of the linear mixed-effects model represented by object evaluated at the estimated coefficients; else, the restricted log-likelihood evaluated at the estimated coefficients is returned.

Usage
# S3 method for lme
logLik(object, REML, …)
Arguments
object

an object inheriting from class "lme", representing a fitted linear mixed-effects model.

REML

an optional logical value. If TRUE the restricted log-likelihood is returned, else, if FALSE, the log-likelihood is returned. Defaults to the method of estimation used, that is TRUE if and only object was fitted with method = "REML" (the default for these fitting functions) .

some methods for this generic require additional arguments. None are used in this method.

Value

the (restricted) log-likelihood of the model represented by object evaluated at the estimated coefficients.
