conservativeEstimate {anMC}R Documentation

Computationally efficient conservative estimate

Description

Computes conservative estimates with two step GANMC procedure for a Gaussian vector. The probability is approximated with a biased low dimensional estimator and the bias is corrected with a MC estimator.

Usage

conservativeEstimate(alpha = 0.95, pred, design, threshold, pn = NULL,
  type = ">", verb = 1, lightReturn = T, algo = "GANMC")

Arguments

alpha

probability of conservative estimate.

pred

list containing mean vector (pred$mean) and covariance matrix (pred$cov).

design

a matrix of size length(pred$mean)x(input space dimension) that contains the design where pred$mean was computed.

threshold

threshold, real number.

pn

coverage probability function, vector of the same length as pred$mean (if not specified it is computed).

type

type of excursion: ">" for excursion above threshold or "<" for below.

verb

level of verbosity, integer from 1–7.

lightReturn

boolean for light return.

algo

choice of algorithm for computing probabilities ("GANMC", "GMC").

Value

A list containing the conservative estimate (set), the Vorob'ev level (lvs). If lightReturn=FALSE, it also returns the actual probability of the set (proba) and the variance of this estimate (vars).
