Summarize Draws of Normal Mixture Components

Description

summary.bayesm.nmix is an S3 method to display summaries of the distribution implied by draws of Normal Mixture Components. Posterior means and variance-covariance matrices are displayed.

Note: 1st and 2nd moments may not be very interpretable for mixtures of normals. This summary function can take a minute or so. The current implementation is not efficient.

Usage

## S3 method for class 'bayesm.nmix'
summary(object, names, burnin=trunc(0.1*nrow(probdraw)), ...)

Arguments

object

an object of class bayesm.nmix, a list of lists of draws

names

optional character vector of names fo reach dimension of the density

burnin

number of draws to burn-in (def: 0.1*nrow(probdraw))

...

parms to send to summary

Details

probdraw

a matrix of R/keep rows by dim of normal mix of mixture prob draws

second comp

not used

compdraw

list of list of lists with draws of mixture comp parms
