BG/NBD: Log-Likelihood functions

Description

Calculates the Log-Likelihood values for the BG/NBD model with and without covariates.

The function bgnbd_nocov_LL_ind calculates the individual LogLikelihood values for each customer for the given parameters.

The function bgnbd_nocov_LL_sum calculates the LogLikelihood value summed across customers for the given parameters.

The function bgnbd_staticcov_LL_ind calculates the individual LogLikelihood values for each customer for the given parameters and covariates.

The function bgnbd_staticcov_LL_sum calculates the individual LogLikelihood values summed across customers.

Usage

bgnbd_nocov_LL_ind(vLogparams, vX, vT_x, vT_cal)

bgnbd_nocov_LL_sum(vLogparams, vX, vT_x, vT_cal)

bgnbd_staticcov_LL_ind(vParams, vX, vT_x, vT_cal, mCov_life, mCov_trans)

bgnbd_staticcov_LL_sum(vParams, vX, vT_x, vT_cal, mCov_life, mCov_trans)

Arguments

vLogparams

vector with the BG/NBD model parameters at log scale. See Details.

vX

Frequency vector of length n counting the numbers of purchases.

vT_x

Recency vector of length n.

vT_cal

Vector of length n indicating the total number of periods of observation.

vParams

vector with the parameters for the BG/NBD model at log scale and the static covariates at original scale. See Details.

mCov_life

Matrix containing the covariates data affecting the lifetime process. One column for each covariate.

mCov_trans

Matrix containing the covariates data affecting the transaction process. One column for each covariate.

Details

vLogparams is a vector with model parameters r, alpha_0, a, b at log-scale, in this order.

vParams is vector with the BG/NBD model parameters at log scale, followed by the parameters for the lifetime covariates at original scale and then followed by the parameters for the transaction covariates at original scale

mCov_trans is a matrix containing the covariates data of the time-invariant covariates that affect the transaction process. Each column represents a different covariate. For every column a gamma parameter needs to added to vLogparams at the respective position.

mCov_life is a matrix containing the covariates data of the time-invariant covariates that affect the lifetime process. Each column represents a different covariate. For every column a gamma parameter needs to added to vLogparams at the respective position.

Value

Returns the respective Log-Likelihood value(s) for the BG/NBD model with or without covariates.
