Named Entities


A named entity is an S4 object that can be referenced by name.


Every named entity is guaranteed to have a slot 'name'. Within a model, the named entities of that model can be accessed using the model[['name']] notation. Access is limited to one nesting depth, such that if 'B' is a submodel of 'A', and 'C' is a matrix of 'B', then 'C' must be accessed using A[['B']][['C']]. See the documentation for Extract for more information.

The following S4 classes are named entities in the OpenMx library: MxAlgebra, MxConstraint, MxMatrix, MxModel, MxData, and MxObjective.
