marginalLikelihood_bySufficientStatistics.GaussianNIW {bbricks}R Documentation

Marginal likelihood of a "GaussianNIW" object, using sufficient statistics

Description

Generate the marginal likelihood of a set of observations of the following model 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.
Marginal likelihood = p(x|m,k,v,S)

Usage

## S3 method for class 'GaussianNIW'
marginalLikelihood_bySufficientStatistics(obj, ss, LOG = TRUE, ...)

Arguments

obj

A "GaussianNIW" object.

ss

Sufficient statistics of x. In Gaussian-NIW case the sufficient statistic of sample x is a object of type "ssGaussian", it can be generated by the function sufficientStatistics().

LOG

Return the log density if set to "TRUE".

...

Additional arguments to be passed to other inherited types.

Value

numeric, the marginal likelihood.
