Appreciate your help and advice on (hopefully a simple) question. This 
relates to the mathematical expressions that LME4 uses to estimate log 
likelihood under maximum likelihood (ML) and under residual maximum 
likelihood (ReML) for fitting linear mixed models (LMM). What I am 
'exactly' looking for is mathematical expressions for log likelihood in 
the form of expressions (2), (4) and (5) in the attached paper by Gurka 

I have gone through the LME4 documentation

I must admit I am unable to figure out the answer to my question.
