vcovEmax {clinDR}R Documentation

Extract Emax model variance-covariance matrix for ML estimates

Description

Extract Emax model variance-covariance matrix for ML estimates

Usage

	## S3 method for class 'fitEmax'
vcov(object, ...)
	## S3 method for class 'emaxsim'
vcov(object, ...)

Arguments

object

Output of Emax fitting and simulation functions

...

None additional inputs supported

Value

Variance-Covariance matrix for the MLE estimates of the parameters from fitEmax. The lower half of the variance-covariance matrix for the estimated parameters stored as a vector in column-major order for each emaxsim simulation. The vc matrix has 16,9, or 4 elements depending on fitType.
