prime_image_est {eel}R Documentation

Calculating prime-image based on similarity mapping for parameters defined by estimating equations

Description

The function calculates the prime image of a given point based on the similarity mapping defined in the EEL calculaiton.

Usage

prime_image_est(theta_tilda, theta, x, equation)
## Default S3 method:
prime_image_est(theta_tilda, theta, x, equation)

Arguments

theta_tilda

The maximum empirical likelihood estimates for parameters defined by estimating equations.

theta

The value to be evaluated.

x

Data Matrix.

equation

The estimating equation by which the parameters are defined, must be put as a function of theta.

Details

The prime image was found by solving the equation

f(\zeta'')=\zeta'.

See the reference paper for details.

Value

The function returns a vector, with the same dimension as the mean, representing the prime image of the point theta, based on the similarity mapping defind in EEL calculation.
