```"""
Linear mixed effects models are regression models for dependent data.
They can be used to estimate regression relationships involving both
means and variances.

These models are also known as multilevel linear models, and
hierarchical linear models.

The MixedLM class fits linear mixed effects models to data, and
provides support for some common post-estimation tasks.  This is a
group-based implementation that is most efficient for models in which
the data can be partitioned into independent groups.  Some models with
crossed effects can be handled by specifying a model with a single
group.

The data are partitioned into disjoint groups.  The probability model
for group i is:

Y = X*beta + Z*gamma + epsilon

where

* n_i is the number of observations in group i

* Y is a n_i dimensional response vector (called endog in MixedLM)

* X is a n_i x k_fe dimensional design matrix for the fixed effects
(called exog in MixedLM)

* beta is a k_fe-dimensional vector of fixed effects parameters
(called fe_params in MixedLM)

* Z is a design matrix for the random effects with n_i rows (called
exog_re in MixedLM).  The number of columns in Z can vary by group
as discussed below.

* gamma is a random vector with mean 0.  The covariance matrix for the
first `k_re` elements of `gamma` (called cov_re in MixedLM) is
common to all groups.  The remaining elements of `gamma` are
variance components as discussed in more detail below. Each group
receives its own independent realization of gamma.

* epsilon is a n_i dimensional vector of iid normal
errors with mean 0 and variance sigma^2; the epsilon
values are independent both within and between groups

Y, X and Z must be entirely observed.  beta, Psi, and sigma^2 are
estimated using ML or REML estimation, and gamma and epsilon are
random so define the probability model.

The marginal mean structure is E[Y | X, Z] = X*beta.  If only the mean
structure is of interest, GEE is an alternative to using linear mixed
models.

Two types of random effects are supported.  Standard random effects
are correlated with each other in arbitrary ways.  Every group has the
same number (`k_re`) of standard random effects, with the same joint
distribution (but with independent realizations across the groups).

Variance components are uncorrelated with each other, and with the
standard random effects.  Each variance component has mean zero, and
all realizations of a given variance component have the same variance
parameter.  The number of realized variance components per variance
parameter can differ across the groups.

The primary reference for the implementation details is:

MJ Lindstrom, DM Bates (1988).  "Newton Raphson and EM algorithms for
linear mixed effects models for repeated measures data".  Journal of
the American Statistical Association. Volume 83, Issue 404, pages
1014-1022.

http://econ.ucsb.edu/~doug/245a/Papers/Mixed%20Effects%20Implement.pdf

All the likelihood, gradient, and Hessian calculations closely follow
Lindstrom and Bates 1988, adapted to support variance components.

The following two documents are written more from the perspective of
users:

http://lme4.r-forge.r-project.org/lMMwR/lrgprt.pdf

http://lme4.r-forge.r-project.org/slides/2009-07-07-Rennes/3Longitudinal-4.pdf

Notation:

* `cov_re` is the random effects covariance matrix (referred to above
as Psi) and `scale` is the (scalar) error variance.  For a single
group, the marginal covariance matrix of endog given exog is scale*I
+ Z * cov_re * Z', where Z is the design matrix for the random
effects in one group.

* `vcomp` is a vector of variance parameters.  The length of `vcomp`
is determined by the number of keys in either the `exog_vc` argument
to ``MixedLM``, or the `vc_formula` argument when using formulas to
fit a model.

Notes:

1. Three different parameterizations are used in different places.
The regression slopes (usually called `fe_params`) are identical in
all three parameterizations, but the variance parameters differ.  The
parameterizations are:

* The "user parameterization" in which cov(endog) = scale*I + Z *
cov_re * Z', as described above.  This is the main parameterization
visible to the user.

* The "profile parameterization" in which cov(endog) = I +
Z * cov_re1 * Z'.  This is the parameterization of the profile
likelihood that is maximized to produce parameter estimates.
(see Lindstrom and Bates for details).  The "user" cov_re is
equal to the "profile" cov_re1 times the scale.

* The "square root parameterization" in which we work with the Cholesky
factor of cov_re1 instead of cov_re directly.  This is hidden from the
user.

All three parameterizations can be packed into a vector by
(optionally) concatenating `fe_params` together with the lower
triangle or Cholesky square root of the dependence structure, followed
by the variance parameters for the variance components.  The are
stored as square roots if (and only if) the random effects covariance
matrix is stored as its Choleky factor.  Note that when unpacking, it
is important to either square or reflect the dependence structure
depending on which parameterization is being used.

Two score methods are implemented.  One takes the score with respect
to the elements of the random effects covariance matrix (used for
inference once the MLE is reached), and the other takes the score with
respect to the parameters of the Choleky square root of the random
effects covariance matrix (used for optimization).

The numerical optimization uses GLS to avoid explicitly optimizing
over the fixed effects parameters.  The likelihood that is optimized
is profiled over both the scale parameter (a scalar) and the fixed
effects parameters (if any).  As a result of this profiling, it is
difficult and unnecessary to calculate the Hessian of the profiled log
likelihood function, so that calculation is not implemented here.
Therefore, optimization methods requiring the Hessian matrix such as
the Newton-Raphson algorithm cannot be used for model fitting.

A matrix of covariates used to determine the
mean structure (the "fixed effects" covariates).
groups : 1d array-like

missing : string
The approach to missing data handling

Notes
-----
`exog_vc` is a dictionary of dictionaries.  Specifically,
`exog_vc[a][g]` is a matrix whose columns are linearly combined
using independent random coefficients.  This random term then
contributes to the variance structure of the data for group `g`.
The random coefficients all have mean zero, and have the same
variance.  The matrix must be `m x k`, where `m` is the number of
observations in group `g`.  The number of columns may differ among
the top-level groups.

The covariates in `exog`, `exog_re` and `exog_vc` may (but need
not) partially or wholly overlap.

`use_sqrt` should almost always be set to True.  The main use case
for use_sqrt=False is when complicated patterns of fixed values in
the covariance structure are set (using the `free` argument to
`fit`) that cannot be expressed in terms of the Cholesky factor L.

Examples
--------
A basic mixed model with fixed effects for the columns of
``exog`` and a random intercept for each distinct value of
``group``:

>>> model = sm.MixedLM(endog, exog, groups)
>>> result = model.fit()

A mixed model with fixed effects for the columns of ``exog`` and
correlated random coefficients for the columns of ``exog_re``:

>>> model = sm.MixedLM(endog, exog, groups, exog_re=exog_re)
>>> result = model.fit()

A mixed model with fixed effects for the columns of ``exog`` and
independent random coefficients for the columns of ``exog_re``:

>>> free = MixedLMParams.from_components(fe_params=np.ones(exog.shape[1]), \
cov_re=np.eye(exog_re.shape[1]))
>>> model = sm.MixedLM(endog, exog, groups, exog_re=exog_re)
>>> result = model.fit(free=free)

A different way to specify independent random coefficients for the
columns of ``exog_re``.  In this example ``groups`` must be a
Pandas Series with compatible indexing with ``exog_re``, and
``exog_re`` has two columns.

>>> g = pd.groupby(groups, by=groups).groups
>>> vc = {}

Create a Model from a formula and dataframe.

Parameters
----------
formula : str or generic Formula object
The formula specifying the model
data : array-like
The data for the model. See Notes.
re_formula : string
A one-sided formula defining the variance structure of the
model.  The default gives a random intercept for each
group.
vc_formula : dict-like
Formulas describing variance components.  `vc_formula[vc]` is
the formula for the component with variance parameter named
`vc`.  The formula is processed into a matrix, and the columns
of this matrix are linearly combined with independent random
coefficients having mean zero and a common variance.
subset : array-like
An array-like object of booleans, integers, or index
values that indicate the subset of df to use in the
model. Assumes df is a `pandas.DataFrame`
args : extra arguments
These are passed to the model
kwargs : extra keyword arguments
These are passed to the model with one exception. The
``eval_env`` keyword is passed to patsy. It can be either a
:class:`patsy:patsy.EvalEnvironment` object or an integer
indicating the depth of the namespace to use. For example, the
default ``eval_env=0`` uses the calling namespace. If you wish
to use a "clean" environment set ``eval_env=-1``.

Returns
-------
model : Model instance

Notes
------
`data` must define __getitem__ with the keys in the formula
terms args and kwargs are passed on to the model
instantiation. E.g., a numpy structured or rec array, a
dictionary, or a pandas DataFrame.

If the variance component is intended to produce random
intercepts for disjoint subsets of a group, specified by
string labels or a categorical data value, always use '0 +' in
the formula so that no overall intercept is included.

If the variance components specify random slopes and you do
not also want a random group-level intercept in the model,
then use '0 +' in the formula to exclude the intercept.

The variance components formulas are processed separately for
each group.  If a variable is categorical the results will not
be affected by whether the group labels are distinct or
re-used over the top-level groups.

This method currently does not correctly handle missing
values, so missing values should be explicitly dropped from
the DataFrame before calling this method.

--------
Suppose we have an educational data set with students nested
in classrooms nested in schools.  The students take a test,
and we want to relate the test scores to the students' ages,
while accounting for the effects of classrooms and schools.
The school will be the top-level group, and the classroom is a
nested group that is specified as a variance component.  Note
that the schools may have different number of classrooms, and
the classroom labels may (but need not be) different across
the schools.

>>> vc = {'classroom': '0 + C(classroom)'}
>>> MixedLM.from_formula('test_score ~ age', vc_formula=vc, \
re_formula='1', groups='school', data=data)

Now suppose we also have a previous test score called
'pretest'.  If we want the relationship between pretest
scores and the current test to vary by classroom, we can
specify a random slope for the pretest score

>>> vc = {'classroom': '0 + C(classroom)', 'pretest': '0 + pretest'}
>>> MixedLM.from_formula('test_score ~ age + pretest', vc_formula=vc, \
re_formula='1', groups='school', data=data)

The following model is almost equivalent to the previous one,
but here the classroom random intercept and pretest slope may
be correlated.

>>> vc = {'classroom': '0 + C(classroom)'}
>>> MixedLM.from_formula('test_score ~ age + pretest', vc_formula=vc, \
re_formula='1 + pretest', groups='school', \

"""
Fit a model in which the fixed effects parameters are
penalized.  The dependence parameters are held fixed at their
estimated values in the unpenalized model.

Parameters
----------
method : string of Penalty object
Method for regularization.  If a string, must be 'l1'.
alpha : array-like
Scalar or vector of penalty weights.  If a scalar, the
same weight is applied to all coefficients; if a vector,
it contains a weight for each coefficient.  If method is a
Penalty object, the weights are scaled by alpha.  For L1
regularization, the weights are used directly.
ceps : positive real scalar
Fixed effects parameters smaller than this value
in magnitude are treaded as being zero.
ptol : positive real scalar
Convergence occurs when the sup norm difference
between successive values of `fe_params` is less than
`ptol`.
maxit : integer
The maximum number of iterations.
fit_kwargs : keywords
Additional keyword arguments passed to fit.

Returns
-------
A MixedLMResults instance containing the results.

Notes
-----
The covariance structure is not updated as the fixed effects
parameters are varied.

The algorithm used here for L1 regularization is a"shooting"
or cyclic coordinate descent algorithm.

If method is 'l1', then `fe_pen` and `cov_pen` are used to
obtain the covariance structure, but are ignored during the
L1-penalized fitting.

"""
Profile-likelihood inference for variance parameters.

Parameters
----------
re_ix : integer
If vtype is `re`, this value is the index of the variance
parameter for which to construct a profile likelihood.  If
`vtype` is 'vc' then `re_ix` is the name of the variance
parameter to be profiled.
vtype : string
Either 're' or 'vc', depending on whether the profile
analysis is for a random effect or a variance component.
num_low : integer
The number of points at which to calculate the likelihood
below the MLE of the parameter of interest.
dist_low : float
The distance below the MLE of the parameter of interest to
begin calculating points on the profile likelihood.
num_high : integer
The number of points at which to calculate the likelihood
abov the MLE of the parameter of interest.
dist_high : float
The distance above the MLE of the parameter of interest to
begin calculating points on the profile likelihood.

Returns
-------
An array with two columns.  The first column contains the
values to which the parameter of interest is constrained.  The
second column contains the corresponding likelihood values.

Notes
-----
Only variance parameters can be profiled.
