Plot diagnostics for a hef object


plot method for class "hef".


## S3 method for class 'hef'
plot(x, y, ..., params = c("hyper", "ru", "pop"),
  which_pop = NULL, plot_type = NULL, one_plot = FALSE,
  add_legend = FALSE, legend_position = "topright",
  legend_text = NULL, num = 100)



an object of class "hef", a result of a call to ru.


Not used.


Additional arguments passed to, hist or pairs. In particular, ru_scale = TRUE produces a plot using the parameterization used for ratio-of-uniforms sampling.


A character scalar that determines to which parameters the plots relate.

  • "hyper": the posterior sample of all hyperparameter values in φ is plotted using

  • "ru": then only the posterior sample generated using ru is plotted using This produces a different plot to params = "hyper" if ru is used only on a subset of φ. For example, this may be the case if x is the result of a call to hanova1. See vignette("bang-c-anova-vignette", package = "bang") for information.

  • "pop": posterior samples and/or densities of the population-specific parameter θ are plotted. The population(s) included are determined by which_pop and the type of plot is determined by plot_type. If plot_type is not supplied then it is set to "dens".


An integer vector or character scalar. If params = "pop" then which_pop indicates which populations to include in the plot. If which_pop is supplied then params is set to "pop". If which_pop = "all" then all populations are included. If there are many populations then this may fail if plot_type = "pairs" and/or one_plot = FALSE.


A character scalar that determines the type of plot produced when params = "pop". If plot_type is supplied then params is set automatically to "pop".

  • "sim": histograms of the posterior samples of θ for the populations in which_pop.

  • "dens": estimates of the marginal posterior densities of θ for the populations in which_pop.

  • "both": both the histograms and estimated posterior densities.

  • "pairs": pairwise scatter plots of the posterior samples of θ for the populations in which_pop, which must have length greater than one.

one_plot, add_legend, legend_position, legend_text

Only relevant if plot_type = "dens". If one_plot = TRUE then the estimated marginal posterior densities are plotted in the same graph and if add_legend = TRUE then a legend is added to this plot using legend in the position indicated by the character scalar legend_position. A character vector legend_text may be used to override the default legend text.


A numeric scalar. If plot_type == "dens" or plot_type == "both" then num gives the number of points at which the marginal densities are evaluated to produce plots.


See the examples in hef and hanova1.
