DS.entropy {BayesGOF}R Documentation

Full and Excess Entropy of DS(G,m) prior

Description

A function that calculates the full entropy of a DS(G,m) prior. For DS(G,m) with m > 0, also returns the excess entropy qLP.

Usage

DS.entropy(DS.GF.obj)

Arguments

DS.GF.obj

Object resulting from running DS.prior function on a data set.

Value

ent

The total entropy of the DS(G,m) prior where m ≥q 0.

qLP

The excess entropy when m > 0.
