logtrans {MASS} | R Documentation |
Find and optionally plot the marginal (profile) likelihood for alpha
for a transformation model of the form log(y + alpha) ~ x1 + x2 + ...
.
logtrans(object, ...)
## Default S3 method:
logtrans(object, ..., alpha = seq(0.5, 6, by = 0.25) - min(y),
plotit = TRUE, interp =, xlab = "alpha",
ylab = "log Likelihood")
## S3 method for class 'formula'
logtrans(object, data, ...)
## S3 method for class 'lm'

List with components x

log-likelihood values).
A plot of the marginal log-likelihood is produced, if requested, together with an approximate mle and 95% confidence interval.
