## summary BCE

### Description

basic statistics of a bce object

### Usage

```## S3 method for class 'bce'
summary(object, confInt = 2/3, ...)
```

### Arguments

 `object ` a bce-object, output of the function bce1() or BCE(). `confInt ` confidence interval of values of composion matrix and ratio matrix. `... ` additional arguments affecting the summary produced.

### Value

if object is output of the function bce1():

a list containing:

 `meanA ` Average solution of the ratio matrix,found through MCMC. `meanX ` Average solution of the composition matrix, found through MCMC. `bestA ` Ratio matrix for which the posterior probability is maximal. `bestX ` Composition matrix for which the posterior probability is maximal. `sdA ` standard deviation of the ratio matrix. `sdX ` standard deviation of the composition matrix. `lastA ` Last value for the ratio matrix in the MCMC run. `lastX ` Last value for the composition matrix in the MCMC run. `medianA ` Median of the ratio matrix. `medianX ` Median of the composition matrix. `ubA ` Upper boundary of the confidence interval of the elements of the ratio matrix. `ubX ` Upper boundary of the confidence interval of the elements of the composition matrix. `lbA ` Lower boundary of the confidence interval of the elements of the ratio matrix. `lbX ` Lower boundary of the confidence interval of the elements of the composition matrix. `covar ` Covariance matrix of all elements of A and X.

if object is output of the function BCE():

a list containing:

 `firstX ` X determined through least squares regression from the initial ratio matrix and the data matrix. `bestRat ` Ratio matrix for which the posterior probability is maximal. `bestX ` Composition matrix for which the posterior probability is maximal. `bestp ` Maximal posterior probability. `bestDat ` Product of `bestRat` and `bestX`. `meanRat ` Means of the elements of the ratio matrix. `sdRat ` Standard deviation of the elements of the ratio matrix. `lbRat ` Lower boundary of the confidence interval of the elements of the ratio matrix. `ubRat ` Upper boundary of the confidence interval of the elements of the ratio matrix. `covRat ` Covariance matrix of the elements of the ratio matrix. `meanX ` Means of the elements of the composition matrix. `sdX ` Standard deviation of the elements of the composition matrix. `lbX ` Lower boundary of the confidence interval of the elements of the composition matrix. `ubX ` Upper boundary of the confidence interval of the elements of the composition matrix. `covX ` Covariance matrix of the elements of the composition matrix.
