selectQdims {anMC}R Documentation

Iteratively select active dimensions

Description

The function selectQdims iteratively selects the number of active dimensions and the dimensions themselves for the computation of p_q. The number of dimensions is increased until p_{q}-p_{q-1} is smaller than the error of the procedure.

Usage

selectQdims(E, threshold, mu, Sigma, pn = NULL, method = 1,
  reducedReturn = T, verb = 0, limits = NULL,
  pmvnorm_usr = pmvnorm)

Arguments

E

discretization design for the field.

threshold

threshold.

mu

mean vector.

Sigma

covariance matrix.

pn

coverage probability function based on threshold, mu and Sigma. If NULL it is computed.

method

integer chosen between

  • 0 selects by taking equally spaced indexes in mu;

  • 1 samples from pn;

  • 2 samples from pn*(1-pn);

  • 3 samples from pn adjusting for the distance (tries to explore all modes);

  • 4 samples from pn*(1-pn) adjusting for the distance (tries to explore all modes);

  • 5 samples with uniform probabilities.

reducedReturn

boolean to select the type of return. See Value for further details.

verb

level of verbosity: 0 returns nothing, 1 returns minimal info.

limits

numeric vector of length 2 with q_min and q_max. If NULL initialized at c(10,300)

pmvnorm_usr

function to compute core probability on active dimensions. Inputs:

  • lower: the vector of lower limits of length d.

  • upper: the vector of upper limits of length d.

  • mean: the mean vector of length d.

  • sigma: the covariance matrix of dimension d.

returns a the probability value with attribute "error", the absolute error. Default is the function pmvnorm from the package mvtnorm.

Value

If reducedReturn=F returns a list containing

Otherwise it returns only indQ.
