Generalized Nonlinear Least Squares Structure

Description

A generalized nonlinear least squares structure is a list of model components representing different sets of parameters in the nonlinear model. A gnlsStruct may contain corStruct and varFunc objects. NULL arguments are not included in the gnlsStruct list.

Usage

gnlsStruct(corStruct, varStruct)

Arguments

corStruct an optional corStruct object, representing a correlation structure. Default is NULL.
varStruct an optional varFunc object, representing a variance function structure. Default is NULL.

Value

a list of model variance-covariance components determining the parameters to be estimated for the associated nonlinear model.
