final_node_monitor {bnmonitor} R Documentation

## Final node monitors

### Description

Marginal and conditional node monitors over the last observation of the data for all vertices of a Bayesian network using the full dataset

### Usage

final_node_monitor(dag, df)


### Arguments

 dag an object of class bn from the bnlearn package df a base R style dataframe

### Details

Consider a Bayesian network over variables Y_1,\dots,Y_m and suppose a dataset (\boldsymbol{y}_1,\dots,\boldsymbol{y}_n) has been observed, where \boldsymbol{y}_i=(y_{i1},\dots,y_{im}) and y_{ij} is the i-th observation of the j-th variable. Let p_n denote the marginal density of Y_j after the first n-1 observations have been processed. Define

E_n = \sum_{k=1}^Kp_n(d_k)\log(p_n(d_k)),

V_n = \sum_{k=1}^K p_n(d_k)\log^2(p_n(d_k))-E_n^2,

where (d_1,\dots,d_K) are the possible values of Y_j. The marginal node monitor for the vertex Y_j is defined as

Z_j=\frac{-\log(p_n(y_{ij}))- E_n}{\sqrt{V_n}}.

Higher values of Z_j can give an indication of a poor model fit for the vertex Y_j.

The conditional node monitor for the vertex Y_j is defined as

Z_j=\frac{-\log(p_n(y_{nj}|y_{n1},\dots,y_{n(j-1)},y_{n(j+1)},\dots,y_{nm}))- E_n}{\sqrt{V_n}},

where E_n and V_n are computed with respect to p_n(y_{nj}|y_{n1},\dots,y_{n(j-1)},y_{n(j+1)},\dots,y_{nm}). Again, higher values of Z_j can give an indication of a poor model fit for the vertex Y_j.

### Value

A dataframe including the names of the vertices, the marginal node monitors and the conditional node monitors. It also return two plots where vertices with a darker color have a higher marginal z-score or conditional z-score, respectively, in absolute value.
