predict.blm {bsamGP}R Documentation

Predict method for a blm object

Description

Computes predicted values of Bayesian linear models.

Usage

	## S3 method for class 'blm'
predict(object, newdata, alpha = 0.05, HPD = TRUE, ...)

Arguments

object

a bsam object

newdata

an optional data matrix or vector with which to predict. If omitted, the fitted values are returned.

alpha

a numeric scalar in the interval (0,1) giving the 100(1-α)% credible intervals.

HPD

a logical variable indicating whether the 100(1-α)% Highest Posterior Density (HPD) intervals are calculated. If HPD=FALSE, the 100(1-α)% equal-tail credible intervals are calculated. The default is TRUE.

...

not used

Details

None.

Value

A list containing posterior means and 95% credible intervals.

The output list includes the following objects:

wbeta

posterior estimates for regression function.

yhat

posterior estimates for generalised regression function.
