Example 9 for WOMBAT

This example – using monthly weight records on beef calves – illustrates more complicated random regression analyses than Example 3, namely a model with an additional random effect, fitting quadratic B-splines (rather than Legendre polynomials) as basis functions, and how to obtain reduced rank estimates.

  • A : full rank analysis
  • A1: like A, but supplying basis functions as user defined
  • B : reduced rank analysis; same rank for all effects
  • C : reduced rank analysis; different ranks
  • D : full rank analysis for a model with correlated direct and maternal genetic effects (using Legendre polynomials as basis functions)
