Plot a list of prior distributions

Description

Plot a list of prior distributions

Usage

plot_prior_list(
  prior_list,
  plot_type = "base",
  x_seq = NULL,
  xlim = NULL,
  x_range_quant = NULL,
  n_points = 500,
  n_samples = 10000,
  force_samples = FALSE,
  transformation = NULL,
  transformation_arguments = NULL,
  transformation_settings = FALSE,
  rescale_x = FALSE,
  par_name = NULL,
  prior_list_mu = NULL,
  ...
)

Arguments

prior_list

list of prior distributions

plot_type

whether to use a base plot "base" or ggplot2 "ggplot" for plotting.

x_seq

sequence of x coordinates

xlim

x plotting range

x_range_quant

quantile used for automatically obtaining x_range if both x_range and x_seq are unspecified. Defaults to 0.005 for all but Cauchy, Student-t, Gamma, and Inverse-gamme distributions that use 0.010.

n_points

number of equally spaced points in the x_range if x_seq is unspecified

n_samples

number of samples from the prior distribution if the density cannot be obtained analytically (or if samples are forced with force_samples = TRUE)

force_samples

should prior be sampled instead of obtaining analytic solution whenever possible

transformation

transformation to be applied to the prior distribution. Either a character specifying one of the prepared transformations:

lin

linear transformation in form of a + b*x

tanh

also known as Fisher's z transformation

exp

exponential transformation

, or a list containing the transformation function fun, inverse transformation function inv, and the Jacobian of the transformation jac. See examples for details.

transformation_arguments

a list with named arguments for the transformation

transformation_settings

boolean indicating whether the settings the x_seq or x_range was specified on the transformed support

rescale_x

allows to rescale x-axis in case a weightfunction is plotted.

par_name

a type of parameter for which the prior is specified. Only relevant if the prior corresponds to a mu parameter that needs to be transformed.

prior_list_mu

list of priors for the mu parameter required when plotting PET-PEESE

...

additional arguments

Value

plot_prior_list returns either NULL or an object of class 'ggplot' if plot_type is plot_type = "ggplot".
