bcfrailphdv: Bivariate Correlated Frailty Models with Varied Variances

Fit and simulate bivariate correlated frailty models with proportional hazard structure. Frailty distributions, such as gamma and lognormal models are supported. Frailty variances of the two subjects can be varied or equal. Details on the models are available in book of Wienke (2011,ISBN:978-1-4200-7388-1). Bivariate gamma fit is obtained using the approach given in Iachine (1995) with modifications. Lognormal fit is based on the approach by Ripatti and Palmgren (2000) <doi:10.1111/j.0006-341X.2000.01016.x>. Univariate and bivariate shared gamma frailty model fits are possible. Standard errors of the estimated covariate coefficients and frailty variance parameter are obtained using the approach given in Klein and Moeschberger (2003,ISBN:0-387-95399-X).
