If the structure of the dependence model chosen includes the random intercept (models "\code{indR}", "\code{MC1R}" and "\code{MC2R}") the estimate of the random effect (\code{omega}) will also appear where \eqn{\omega=\log\sigma^2}{\omega=log(\omega^2)}.} \section{Methods}{ \describe{ \item{\code{signature(object = "ANY")}:}{Generic function.} \item{\code{signature(object = "bild")}:}{Generate a summary as an object of class \code{\link[=summary.bild-class]{summary.bild}}, containing information about the matched call to \code{bild}, the number of profiles in the data, the number of profiles used in the fit, the log-likelihood, the AIC, a table with estimates, asymptotic SE, t-values and p-values, the estimated correlation and variance-covariance matrix for the estimated parameters if the user wishes, and a message giving additional information returned by the optimizer.} }} \keyword{methods}
