iBMAcontrolLM: Control parameters for 'iterateBMAlm'

Description Usage Arguments Value References See Also Examples

View source: R/iBMAcontrolLM.R


Assigns default control parameters for iterateBMAlm, and allows setting control parameter values.


iBMAcontrolLM( OR = 20, nbest = 10, maxNvar = 30, thresProbne0 = 1,
               keepModels = FALSE, maxIter = 200000) 



A number specifying the maximum ratio for excluding models in Occam's window.


A positive integer specifying the number of models of each size to be considered by leaps-and-bounds in determining the model space for Bayesian Model Averaging. The default value is 10.


A positive integer specifying the maximum number of variables (excluding the intercept) used in each iteration of BMA. The default value is 30.


Threshold (in percent) for the posterior probability that each variable is has a non-zero coefficient (in percent). Variables with posterior probability less than thresProbne0 are removed in future BMA iterations. The default value is 1 percent.


A logical value indicating whether or not to keep the BMA models from all of the iterations and apply Occam's window using OR at the end, or to apply Occam's window in all BMA iterations and return the final model. The default is not to keep the models. Setting the argument to TRUE requires more memory and may slow the computation as a result.


A positive integer giving a limit on the number of iterations of iterateBMAlm. The default value is 20000. iterateBMAlm will terminate in fewer than maxIter iterations if the iterative BMA modeling process has seen all available variables.


A list of values for the named control parameters to be passed to a version of the function bicreg from the BMA package that has been modified to handle prior probabilities.
