bf {BDgraph} R Documentation

## Bayes factor between two graphs

### Description

Compute the Bayes factor between the structure of two graphs.

### Usage

```
bf( num, den, bdgraph.obj, log = TRUE )
```

### Arguments

 ```num, den``` An adjacency matrix corresponding to the true graph structure in which a_{ij}=1 if there is a link between notes i and j, otherwise a_{ij}=0. It can be an object with `S3` class `"graph"` from function `graph.sim`. It can be an object with `S3` class `"sim"` from function `bdgraph.sim`. `bdgraph.obj` An object of `S3` class `"bdgraph"`, from function `bdgraph`. It also can be an object of `S3` class `"ssgraph"`, from the function `ssgraph::ssgraph()` of `R` package `ssgraph::ssgraph()`. `log` A character value. If TRUE the Bayes factor is given as log(BF).

### Value

A single numeric value, the Bayes factor of the two graph structures `num` and `den`.

### Examples

```    ## Not run:
# Generating multivariate normal data from a 'circle' graph
data.sim <- bdgraph.sim( n = 50, p = 6, graph = "circle", vis = TRUE )

# Running sampling algorithm
bdgraph.obj <- bdgraph( data = data.sim )

graph_1 <- graph.sim( p = 6, vis = TRUE )
graph_2 <- graph.sim( p = 6, vis = TRUE )

bf( num = graph_1, den = graph_2, bdgraph.obj = bdgraph.obj )

## End(Not run)
```
