Suppose I fit the following model:

>library(gam)

....
>fit <- gam(y~x1+x2+s(x3),family=binomial)

and then I use

> fitf$coef

       x1 x2 s(x3)
4.1947460 2.7967200 0.0788252

are the coefficients for x1 and x2 the estimated coefficients? what is the meaning of s(x3)? since this is a non-parametric component, it may not belong here as a coefficient, am I right?
