FixedEffectDescription (CovariateModel)

Descriptions of fixed effects in CovariateModel object

Description

The FixedEffectDescription property is a cell array of character vectors describing the fixed effects in the Expression property of a CovariateModel object. Each character vector describes the role of a fixed effect in the expression equation. For example, in the following expression equation:

Cl = exp(theta1 + theta2*WEIGHT + theta3*AGE + eta1)

The description for the fixed effect theta1 is 'Cl', which indicates it is the intercept for the parameter Cl. Also, the description for the fixed effect theta2 is 'Cl/WEIGHT', which indicates it is the slope of the line that defines the relationship between the parameter Cl and the covariate WEIGHT.
