 PhaseStatistics R Documentation

Summary statistics of a phase

Description

Estimation of summary statistics, including the beginning and end of a phase, and the duration of the phase

Usage

```PhaseStatistics(
PhaseMin_chain,
PhaseMax_chain,
level = 0.95,
roundingOfValue = 0
)
```

Arguments

 `PhaseMin_chain` Numeric vector containing the output of the MCMC algorithm for the minimum of the dates included in the phase. `PhaseMax_chain` Numeric vector containing the output of the MCMC algorithm for the maximum of the dates included in the phase. `level` Probability corresponding to the level of confidence used for the credible interval and the highest density region. `roundingOfValue` Integer indicating the number of decimal places.

Details

The summary statistics are those given by the `MarginalStatistics()` function. The time range is given by `PhaseTimeRange()` function. The duration is computed as follows: duration = maximum - minimum at each iteration of the MCMC output.

Value

A matrix of values corresponding to the summary statistics:

1

Statistics of the minimum of the dates included in the phase

2

Statistics of the maximum of the dates included in the phase

3

Statistics of the duration of the dates included in the phase

The results are given in calendar year (in format BC/AD).
