[R] variance estimation in coxme

I'm fitting a random effects model using coxme and I was wondering how are
the variance components estimated? Are the fixed and random effects
estimated iteratively using Fisher scoring method?

I referred to the coxme manual but it didn't specify how the parameters are

Thank you!!
