i know this guide and also want to give a reproducale example.but i do not know how example is from a text book names applied multilevel data analysis.the notation is mainly from Raudenbush's Hierarchical linear model.and the book use the HLM software to fit the model(my mexample is from the book). i know how to fit the model using HLM,but i would like to fit it with R if possible as i have no HLM software(i have student version,but it has limitation).

many times,i suffer from the differences in the notation,the terminology ....and this time,face the same problem.
