design.efficiency {Crossover}R Documentation

Create the design matrix, variance-covariance matrix, the variance of each pairwise comparison and the efficicency of each pairwise comparison for a cross-over design

Description

Function to read in a cross-over design and create the design matrix X, the variance of each pairwise comparison and the efficicency of each pairwise comparison.

Usage

design.efficiency(design, model = 1, model.param = list(),
  v = length(levels(as.factor(design))))

Arguments

design

Cross-over design.

model

Model - one of the following: 1) "Standard additive model", 2) "Second-order carry-over effects", 3) "Full set of interactions", 4) "Self-adjacency model", 5) "Placebo model", 6) "No carry-over into self model", 7) "Treatment decay model", 8) "Proportionality model", 9) "No carry-over effects".

model.param

List of additional model specific parameters. In the moment these are ppp, the proportionality parameter for the proportionality model, and placebos, the number of placebo treatments in the placebo model.

v

Number of treatments
