Description

The BLRXy(‘Bayesian Linear Regression’) function fits various types of parametric Bayesian regressions to continuos outcomes. This is a wrapper for function BLRCross.

BLRXy(y, intercept=TRUE, ETA, 
             nIter = 1500, burnIn = 500, thin = 5, 
             S0 = NULL, df0 = 5, R2 = 0.5, 
             verbose = TRUE, saveAt="",
             rmExistingFiles = TRUE)

Arguments

y

(numeric, n) the data-vector (NAs allowed).

intercept

(logical) indicates if an intercept is included.

ETA

(list) This is a two-level list used to specify the regression function (or linear predictor). Regression on covariates and other types of random effects are specified in this two-level list. For instance:

ETA=list(list(X=W, model="FIXED"), 
              list(X=Z,model="BRR")),

specifies that the linear predictor should include: an intercept (included by default), a linear regression on W with regression coefficients treated as fixed effects (i.e., flat prior), plus regression on Z, with regression coefficients modeled as in the Bayesian Ridge Regression.

The following options are implemented for linear regressions: FIXED (Flat prior), BayesA, BayesB, BRR (Gaussian prior), BayesC and SSVS.

nIter,burnIn, thin

(integer) the number of iterations, burn-in and thinning.

saveAt

(string) this may include a path and a pre-fix that will be added to the name of the files that are saved as the program runs.

S0, df0

(numeric) The scale parameter for the scaled inverse-chi squared prior assigned to the residual variance, only used with Gaussian outcomes. In the parameterization of the scaled-inverse chi square in BGLR the expected values is S0/(df0-2). The default value for the df parameter is 5. If the scale is not specified a value is calculated so that the prior mode of the residual variance equals var(y)*R2 (see below). For further details see the vignettes in the package.

R2

(numeric, 0<R2<1) The proportion of variance that one expects, a priori, to be explained by the regression. Only used if the hyper-parameters are not specified; if that is the case, internaly, hyper-paramters are set so that the prior modes are consistent with the variance partition specified by R2 and the prior distribution is relatively flat at the mode. For further details see the vignettes in the package.

verbose

(logical) if TRUE the iteration history is printed, default TRUE.

rmExistingFiles

(logical) if TRUE removes existing output files from previous runs, default TRUE.
