I'm trying to run a model in which I have several matrices that should contain the same parameter estimates (they overlap partly). I know I can use labels or mxConstraint to put equality constraints on parameter estimates, but I was wondering if it is also possible to refer directly to the parameter estimates of a matrix in other parts of the OpenMx environment. For example, I have tried to build an mxAlgebra that refers to the parameter estimates of an mxMatrix by using:
but this doesn't seem to work.
If anybody has any suggestion on how to make this work, it is more than welcome!
