Linked (D)GP emulator construction


This function constructs a linked (D)GP emulator.


lgp(struc, B = 50)



a list contains L (the number of layers in a systems of computer models) sub-lists, each of which represents a layer and contains (D)GP emulators (represented by instances of S3 class gp or dgp) of computer models. The sub-lists are placed in the list in the same order of the specified computer model system's hierarchy.


the number of imputations to produce the predictions. Increase the value to account for more imputation uncertainties. Decrease the value for lower imputation uncertainties but faster predictions. If the system consists only GP emulators, B is set to 1 automatically. Defaults to 50.

An S3 class named lgp that contains a slot called emulator_obj, which is a 'python' object that stores the information for predictions from the linked emulator. The returned lgp object can be used by
