posteriorDiscard.GaussianNIG {bbricks}R Documentation

Update a "GaussianNIG" object with sample sufficient statistics

Description

For the model structure:

x \sim Gaussian(X beta,sigma^2)

sigma^2 \sim InvGamma(a,b)

beta \sim Gaussian(m,sigma^2 V)

Where X is a row vector, or a design matrix where each row is an obervation. InvGamma() is the Inverse-Gamma distribution, Gaussian() is the Gaussian distribution. See ?dInvGamma and dGaussian for the definitions of these distribution.
The model structure and prior parameters are stored in a "GaussianNIG" object.
Contrary to posterior(), this function will update (m,V,a,b) by removing the information of observed samples (x,X). The model structure and prior parameters are stored in a "GaussianNIG" object, the prior parameters in this object will be updated after running this function.

Usage

## S3 method for class 'GaussianNIG'
posteriorDiscard(obj, ss, w = NULL, ...)

Arguments

obj

A "GaussianNIG" object.

ss

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

w

Sample weights,default NULL.

...

Additional arguments to be passed to other inherited types.

Value

None. the gamma stored in "obj" will be updated with the information in "ss".

Examples

X <- 1:20
x <- rnorm(20)+ X*0.3
## add information, then remove them
obj <- GaussianNIG(gamma=list(m=0,V=1,a=1,b=1))
ss <- sufficientStatistics(obj = obj,X=X,x=x)
posterior(obj = obj,ss = ss)
obj
posteriorDiscard(obj=obj,ss=ss)
obj
## or, add information, then remove them one by one
obj <- GaussianNIG(gamma=list(m=0,V=1,a=1,b=1))
ssEach <- sufficientStatistics(obj = obj,X=X,x=x,foreach = TRUE)
for(sss in ssEach) posterior(obj = obj,ss = sss)
obj
for(sss in ssEach) posteriorDiscard(obj = obj,ss = sss)
