Title Driving factors in the colonization of Oceania: developing island-level statistical models to test competing hypotheses (Electronic Supporting Material)
Date 2015-01-23
Description To test the model specification and fitting algorithms, we simulated data using randomly generated parameters, settlement chronology, and accessibility matrix for N islands. Using the function optim in R, we found the maximum likelihood estimates and compared them with the "true" parameter values used to simulate the data. We repeated this process 100 times to assess the estimation process.
