Information about the number of times branch lengths are estimated to be at the boundary in the simulated data set. Column 1 gives the value of γ used to simulate the data. Columns 2, 3, and 4 give the number of trials (of 100 total) for which the MLE of the particular branch length is estimated to be at the boundary.
