Dear Michel,

Should I use lognested or nested?
Lognested will give me a nest parameter of lower than 1. For both a mode>destination model as for destination>mode model.
If I used nested it will give me this error: runtimeWarning: overflow encountered in double_scalars rho = num / denom.

Any advise?
Thanks in advance.

The contribution to the loglikelihood is the log of the probability, given by lognested. 
“nested” (simply defined as exp(lognested)) is used for simulation, not estimation.
