### Overview

pammtools facilitates the estimation of Piece-wise exponential Additive Mixed Models (PAMMs) for time-to-event data. PAMMs can be represented as generalized additive models and can therefore be estimated using GAM software (e.g. mgcv), which, compared to other packages for survival analysis, often offers more flexibility w.r.t. to the specification of covariate effects (e.g. non-linear, time-varying effects, cumulative effects, etc.).
