Multinomial Processing Tree (MPT) Model Fitting Function

mptmodel is a basic fitting function for multinomial processing tree (MPT) models.

Keywords
regression
Usage
mptmodel(y, weights = NULL, spec, treeid = NULL, optimargs = list(control = list(reltol = .Machine$double.eps^(1/1.2), maxit = 1000)), start = NULL, vcov = TRUE, estfun = FALSE, ...)
Arguments
y
matrix of response frequencies.
weights
an optional vector of weights (interpreted as case weights).
spec
an object of class mptspec: typically result of a call to mptspec. A symbolic description of the model to be fitted.
treeid
a vector that identifies each tree in a joint multinomial model.
optimargs
a list of arguments passed to the optimization function (optim).
start
a vector of starting values for the parameter estimates between zero and one.
vcov
logical. Should the estimated variance-covariance be included in the fitted model object?
estfun
logical. Should the empirical estimating functions (score/gradient contributions) be included in the fitted model object?
...
further arguments passed to functions.
Details

mptmodel provides a basic fitting function for multinomial processing tree (MPT) models, intended as a building block for fitting MPT trees in the psychotree package. While mptmodel is intended for individual response frequencies, the mpt package provides functions for aggregate data.

MPT models are specified using the mptspec function. See the documentation in the mpt package for details. mptmodel returns an object of class "mptmodel" for which several basic methods are available, including print, plot, summary, coef, vcov, logLik, estfun and predict.

Value

mptmodel returns an S3 object of class "mptmodel", i.e., a list with components as follows:
y
a matrix with the response frequencies,
coefficients
estimated parameters,
loglik
log-likelihood of the fitted model,
npar
number of estimated parameters,
weights
the weights used (if any),
nobs
number of observations (with non-zero weights),
ysum
the aggregate response frequencies,
fitted, goodness.of.fit, ...
