MAP.GaussianGaussian {bbricks}R Documentation

Maximum A Posteriori (MAP) estimate of a "GaussianGaussian" object

Description

Generate the MAP estimate of mu in following model structure:

x \sim Gaussian(mu,Sigma)

mu \sim Gaussian(m,S)

Where Sigma is known. Gaussian() is the Gaussian distribution. See ?dGaussian for the definition of Gaussian distribution.
The model structure and prior parameters are stored in a "GaussianGaussian" object.
The MAP estimates are:

Usage

## S3 method for class 'GaussianGaussian'
MAP(obj, ...)

Arguments

obj

A "GaussianGaussian" object.

...

Additional arguments to be passed to other inherited types.

Value

numeric vector, the MAP estimate of "mu".

Examples

obj <- GaussianGaussian(gamma=list(Sigma=matrix(c(2,1,1,2),2,2),m=c(0.2,0.5),S=diag(2)))
x <- rGaussian(100,c(0,0),Sigma = matrix(c(2,1,1,2),2,2))
ss <- sufficientStatistics(obj=obj,x=x,foreach = FALSE)
## update prior into posterior
posterior(obj = obj,ss = ss)
## get the MAP estimate of mu
MAP(obj)
