rtgamma {BART}R Documentation

Testing truncated Gamma sampling

Description

Truncated Gamma draws are needed for the standard deviation of the random effects Gibbs conditional.

Usage

rtgamma(n, shape, rate, a)

Arguments

n

Number of samples.

shape

Sampling from a truncated Gamma where E[x]=shape/rate.

rate

This parameter is the inverse of the scale which is an alternative representation for the Gamma distribution.

a

The truncation point, i.e., a<x.

Value

Returns n truncated Gamma, i.e., Gam(shape, rate)I(a, infinity).
