Introduction to Mixed Modeling Procedures

Linear, Generalized Linear, and Nonlinear Mixed Models

The linear model shown at the beginning of this chapter was incomplete because the distributional properties of the random variables and their relationship were not specified. In this section the specification of the models is completed and the three model classes, linear mixed models (LMM), generalized linear mixed models (GLMM), and nonlinear mixed models (NLMM), are delineated.
