[R-meta] Weighing factors in rma.mv corresponding to those used in lmer

Dear list members,

I want to use the rma.mv function and compare the output with that from the lmer function.
I need to compare 3 weighting schemes: (1) the number of replica (n), (2) the inverse of SE and (3) the inverse of variance or 1/SE^2 in each PubID.

(res1 <- lmer(y ~ x1 + x2 + (1|PubID), data=Dataset, weights = n, na.action = "na.omit"))

(res2 <- lmer(y ~ x1 + x2 + (1|PubID), data=Dataset, weights = 1/SE, na.action = "na.omit"))

(res3 <- lmer(y ~ x1 + x2 + (1|PubID), data=Dataset, weights = 1/SE^2, na.action = "na.omit"))

What are the rma.mv scripts corresponding to res1, res2 and res3 ?

Thanks in advance

Roger ☺
