Creates an object representing the prior distribution on models for BAS using a truncated Distribution on the Model Size where the probability of gamma = p^-kappa |gamma| where gamma is the vecotr of model indicators
parameter in the prior distribution that controls sparsity
parameter that determines truncation in the distribution i.e. P(gamma; alpha, beta, trunc) = 0 if |gamma| > trunc.
The beta-binomial distribution on model size is obtained by assigning each variable inclusion indicator independent Bernoulli distributions with probability w, and then giving w a beta(alpha,beta) distribution. Marginalizing over w leads to the distribution on the number of included predictos having a beta-binomial distribution. The default hyperparameters lead to a uniform distribution over model size. The Truncated version assigns zero probability to all models of size > trunc.
returns an object of class "prior", with the family and hyerparameters.
