JAGS_bridgesampling_posterior {BayesTools}R Documentation

Prepare 'JAGS' posterior for 'bridgesampling'

Description

prepares posterior distribution for 'bridgesampling' by removing unnecessary parameters and attaching lower and upper bounds of parameters based on a list of prior distributions.

Usage

JAGS_bridgesampling_posterior(
  posterior,
  prior_list,
  add_parameters = NULL,
  add_bounds = NULL
)

Arguments

posterior

matrix of mcmc samples from the posterior distribution

prior_list

named list of prior distribution (names correspond to the parameter names)

add_parameters

vector of additional parameter names that should be used in bridgesampling but were not specified in the prior_list

add_bounds

list with two name vectors ("lb" and "up") containing lower and upper bounds of the additional parameters that were not specified in the prior_list

Value

JAGS_bridgesampling_posterior returns a matrix of posterior samples with 'lb' and 'ub' attributes carrying the lower and upper boundaries.
