rNIW {bbricks} R Documentation

## Random number generation for Normal-Inverse-Wishart (NIW) distribution.

### Description

Generate a NIW sample.For a random vector mu, and a random matrix Sigma, the density function is defined as:

sqrt(2 pi^p |Sigma/k|)^{-1} exp(-1/2 (mu-m )^T (Sigma/k)^{-1} (mu-m)) (2^{(v p)/2} Gamma_p(v/2) |S|^{-v/2})^{-1} |Sigma|^{(-v-p-1)/2} exp(-1/2 tr(Sigma^{-1} S))

Where p is the dimension of mu and Sigma.

### Usage

```rNIW(m, k, v, S)
```

### Arguments

 `m` numeric, mean of mu. `k` numeric, precision of mu. `v` numeric, degree of freedom of Sigma. `S` numeric, a symmetric positive definite scale matrix of Sigma, S is proportional to E(Sigma).

### Value

A list of two list(mu,Sigma), where 'mu' is a numeric vector, the Gaussian sample; 'Sigma' is a symmetric positive definite matrix, the Inverse-Wishart sample.
