ExpHyperRatioTarget {EDISON}  R Documentation 
Calculates the ratio of an exponential hyperparameter move.
Description
This function calculates the acceptance ratio of a level1 hyperparameter move for a given target node.
Usage
ExpHyperRatioTarget(beta.proposed, beta.old, target.net, self.loops)
Arguments
beta.proposed 
Proposed new hyperparameter value. 
beta.old 
Previous value of hyperparameter beta. 
target.net 
Network segments for the target node associated with this hyperparameter value. 
self.loops 

Value
Returns the ratio of the exponential prior with the previous hyperparameter value and the proposed new hyperparameter value.
