dPosterior.GaussianNIW {bbricks}R Documentation

Density function of the posterior distribution of a "GaussianNIW" object

Description

Generate the the density value of the posterior distribution of the following structure:

mu,Sigma|m,k,v,S \sim NIW(m,k,v,S)

x|mu,Sigma \sim Gaussian(mu,Sigma)

Where NIW() is the Normal-Inverse-Wishart distribution, Gaussian() is the Gaussian distribution. See ?dNIW and dGaussian for the definitions of these distribution.
The model structure and prior parameters are stored in a "GaussianNIW" object.
Posterior density is the density function of NIW(mu,Sigma|m,k,v,S).

Usage

## S3 method for class 'GaussianNIW'
dPosterior(obj, mu, Sigma, LOG = TRUE, ...)

Arguments

obj

A "GaussianNIW" object.

mu

vector.

Sigma

matrix, nrow(Sigma) = length(mu).

LOG

Return the log density if set to "TRUE".

...

Additional arguments to be passed to other inherited types.

Value

numeric, the posterior density of (mu,Sigma).
