### 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.).
