rPosteriorPredictive.GaussianGaussian {bbricks}R Documentation

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

Description

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

x \sim Gaussian(mu,Sigma)

mu \sim Gaussian(m,S)

Where Sigma is known. Gaussian() is the Gaussian distribution. See ?dGaussian for the definition of Gaussian distribution.
The model structure and prior parameters are stored in a "GaussianGaussian" object.
Posterior predictive is a distribution of x|m,S,Sigma.

Usage

## S3 method for class 'GaussianGaussian'
rPosteriorPredictive(obj, n = 1, ...)

Arguments

obj

A "GaussianGaussian" object.

n

integer, number of samples.

...

Additional arguments to be passed to other inherited types.

Value

A matrix of n rows, each row is a sample.
