scores3D {BMAmevt}R Documentation

Logarithmic score and L^2 distance between two densities on the simplex (trivariate case).

Description

Computes the Kullback-Leibler divergence and the L^2 distance between the "true" density (true.dens) and an estimated density (est.dens).

Usage

scores3D(true.dens, est.dens, npoints, eps)

Arguments

true.dens

A npoints*npoints matrix: The reference density, typically the distribution from which data was simulated. Must be a valid density argument to be passed to dgridplot, with equi=FALSE.

est.dens

The estimated density: of the same type as true.dens.

npoints

Number of grid points used to construct the density matrices (see discretize).

eps

Minimum distance from a grid point to the simplex boundary (see discretize).

Details

The integration is made via rect.integrate: The discretization grid corresponding to the two matrices must be constructed with discretize(npoints, eps, equi=FALSE).

Value

A list made of

Examples

dens1=dpairbeta.grid(par=c(0.8,2,5,8),npoints=150,eps=1e-3,
                     equi=FALSE)
dens2=dnestlog.grid(par=c(0.5,0.8,0.4,0.6),npoints=150,eps=1e-3, equi=FALSE)

scores3D(true.dens=dens1,
  est.dens=dens2,
  npoints=150, eps=1e-4)
