rPosterior.GaussianNIG {bbricks}R Documentation

Generate ramdom samples from the posterior distribution of a "GaussianNIG" object

Description

Generate random samples from the posterior distribution of the following structure: Generate the the density value of the posterior distribution of the following 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.
Posterior distribution is the distribution of beta,sigma^2|m,V,a,b.

Usage

## S3 method for class 'GaussianNIG'
rPosterior(obj, ...)

Arguments

A "GaussianNIG" object.

Additional arguments to be passed to other inherited types.
