rPosteriorPredictive.CatDP {bbricks}R Documentation

Generate random samples from the posterior predictive distribution of a "CatDP" object

Description

Generate random samples from the posterior predictive distribution of the following structure:

pi|alpha \sim DP(alpha,U)

x|pi \sim Categorical(pi)

where DP(alpha,U) is a Dirichlet Process on positive integers, alpha is the "concentration parameter" of the Dirichlet Process, U is the "base measure" of this Dirichlet process, it is an uniform distribution on all positive integers.Categorical() is the Categorical distribution. See dCategorical for the definition of the Categorical distribution.
In the case of CatDP, x can only be positive integers.
The model structure and prior parameters are stored in a "CatDP" object.
Posterior predictive distribution is the distribution of x|alpha.

Usage

## S3 method for class 'CatDP'

Arguments

obj

A "CatDP" object.

n

...

Additional arguments to be passed to other inherited types.
