cost_gaussian {bbemkr}R Documentation

Negative of log posterior associated with the bandwidths

Description

Calculates the negative of log posterior, using the leave-one-out cross validated samples.

Usage

cost_gaussian(x, data_x, data_y, prior_p, prior_st)

Arguments

x

Log of square bandwidths

data_x

Regressors

data_y

Response variable

prior_p

A tuning parameter of the prior of error variance, following inverse gamma distribution

prior_st

Another tuning parameter of the prior of error variance, following inverse gamma distribution

Details

Bandwidth can be re-parameterized by a constant times optimal convergence rate, that is, h=c*n^{rate}. The prior of c^2 is assumed to follow an inverse-gamma prior with hyperparameters prior_p = 2 and prior_st = 1.

Value

Value of the cost function
