sufficientStatistics.GaussianNIG {bbricks}R Documentation

Sufficient statistics of a "GaussianNIG" object

Description

For following Gaussian-NIG 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.
The sufficient statistics of a set of samples (x,X) are:

Usage

## S3 method for class 'GaussianNIG'
sufficientStatistics(obj, x, X, foreach = FALSE, ...)

Arguments

obj

A "GaussianNIG" object.

x

numeric, must satisfy length(x) = nrow(X)

X

matrix, must satisfy length(x) = nrow(X)

foreach

logical, if foreach=TRUE, will return a list of sufficient statistics for each (x,X), otherwise will return the sufficient statistics as a whole.

...

Additional arguments to be passed to other inherited types.

Value

If foreach=TRUE, will return a list of sufficient statistics for each row of (x,X), otherwise will return the sufficient statistics of (x,X) as a whole.

X <- 1:20
x <- rnorm(20)+ X*0.3
sufficientStatistics(obj = obj,X=X,x=x)
