Re: [R] augPred plot in nlme library

Hi David,

this is the sort of thing that Deepayan meant. Make a dataset available to us, or use one that will be installed by default on R.

eg

require(nlme)
fm1 <- lme(distance ~ age, data = Orthodont) plot(augPred(fm1))

# All linear

fm2a <- lme(distance ~ age + age.2, data = Orthodont) plot(augPred(fm2a))

# Still linear

fm2b <- lme(distance ~ age + I(age^2), data = Orthodont) plot(augPred(fm2b))

# Quadratic!

I hope that this helps you resolve the problem.

Andrew
