an |
prior.mean |
vector; mean vector of the multivariate Normal prior. By default set to a vector of 0's. |
prior.sigma |
square matrix; variance/covariance matrix for the multivariate Normal prior. By default set to a diagonal matrix with every diagonal entry equal to 100. |
burn.in |
count; number of burn-in iterations for every chain of the population. |
main.iters |
count; number of iterations for every chain of the population. |
aux.iters |
count; number of auxiliary iterations used for network simulation. |
nchains |
count; number of chains of the population MCMC. By default set to twice the model dimension (number of model terms). |
gamma |
scalar; parallel adaptive direction sampling move factor. |
V.proposal |
count; diagonal entry for the multivariate Normal proposal. By default set to 0.0025. |
startVals |
vector; optional starting values for the parameter estimation. |
offset.coef |
vector; A vector of coefficients for the offset terms. |
... |
additional arguments, to be passed to lower-level functions. |
