## 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:

• the effective number of samples N=nrow(X) or length(x)

• the covariance of X and x SXx=t(X)

• the covariance of X SX=t(X)

• the covariance of x Sx=t(x)

### 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.
