Dear all,

I was wondering if someone could help me with the specification of a formula including both nested and crossed effects in the same model in lmer. I have one predictor variable, x, and three grouping factors, a,b and c. Factor b is nested in a but is partially crossed with c. Also, I'm interested in an interaction between the crossed effects b and c. I specified a formula in lmer as

y ~ x + (1|a/b) + (1|c) + (1|b:c)

I could fit this model using lmer with no problems but I just would like to know if that specification is correct. Thank you so much for any thoughts.

Eduardo
