Thank you very much for your help.

When we ran Package lme4 to our longitudinal data, we got following 
warnings repeatedly.

> fixed-effect model matrix is rank deficient so dropping 2 columns / 
> coefficients
> boundary (singular) fit: see ?isSingular 
Nevertheless, we got some results. Are these valid?
When I look for the Q&A in some Statistic Forums, sometimes I found the 
previous answer that we do not have to care these warnings.

In actuality, how do we deal with these warnings?

Thank you for your time.
