PhaseTimeRange {ArchaeoPhases}R Documentation

Phase time range

Description

Computes the shortest interval that satisfies P(PhaseMin_chain =< IntervalInf < IntervalSup =< PhaseMax_chain | M) = level

Usage

PhaseTimeRange(PhaseMin_chain, PhaseMax_chain, level = 0.95)

Arguments

PhaseMin_chain

: Numeric vector containing the output of the MCMC algorithm for the minimum of the events included in the phase.

PhaseMax_chain

: Numeric vector containing the output of the MCMC algorithm for the maximum of the events included in the phase.

level

Probability corresponding to the desired level of confidence.

Value

A vector of values containing the desired level of confidence and the endpoints of the shortest time range associated with this desired level. The result is given in calendar years (BC/AD).
