  1. λ and δ C.L. denotes 95% confidence limits for estimates of these parameters, L denotes log likelihood values for each model, and Model C.L. denotes the 95% confidence limits of likelihood ratios used to test each model. R denotes the observed likelihood ratio that is used as a critical value to test each model via exclusion from likelihood ratio confidence limits.
