I am trying to use nlme but instead of using one of the “identity” variance or covariance matrixes such as compsymm or ar1. Instead I want the covariance matrix to be represented in the following manor. Is it possible to define my own covariance matrix?
I have search and found papers saying I can define my own covariance matrixes and own correlation structures. Said use corstruct but not sure how to implement it. Also found documentation to use re.structur. If able to help me out it be greatly appreciated as I am stuck.
