A list containing:
interactions
: A matrix with p
rows and p
columns,
containing the maximum pseudolikelihood estimates of the pairwise
associations in the offdiagonal elements.
thresholds
: A matrix with p
rows and max(m)
columns, containing the maximum pseudolikelihood estimates of the category
thresholds for each node.
