Objectives
To model random effects with (i) heavy-tailed distributions, (ii) skewed distributions (scale mixtures of [beta] (SMB) distributions) and (iii) nonparametric alternatives; to improve the methodologies in GLMMs; to implement and compare the GLMMs using both likelihood and Bayesian approaches; to investigate sensitivity to outliers.
