## Fitting a Tweedie GLMM, using the initial estimates of hierCredTweedie

### Description

This function first estimates the random effects model using Ohlsson's GLMC algorithm (Ohlsson, 2008) and then uses these estimates as initial estimates when fitting a Tweedie GLMM.

### Usage

tweedieGLMM(
formula,
data,
weights,
muHatGLM = FALSE,
epsilon = 1e-04,
maxiter = 500,
verbose = FALSE,
balanceProperty = TRUE
)


### Arguments

 formula object of type formula that specifies which model should be fitted. Syntax is the same as for lmer and glmer. For example, Yijkt ~ x1 + x2 + (1 | Industry / Branch). data an object that is coercible by as.data.table, containing the variables in the model. weights variable name of the exposure weight. muHatGLM indicates which estimate has to be used in the algorithm for the intercept term. Default is TRUE, which used the intercept as estimated by the GLM. If FALSE, the estimate of the hierarchical credibility model is used. epsilon positive convergence tolerance \epsilon; the iterations converge when ||\theta[k] - \theta[k - 1]||^2[[2]]/||\theta[k - 1]||^2[[2]] < \epsilon. Here, \theta[k] is the parameter vector at the k^{th} iteration. maxiter maximum number of iterations. verbose logical indicating if output should be produced during the algorithm. balanceProperty logical indicating if the balance property should be satisfied.

### Value

an object of class cpglmm, containing the model fit.
