Simulating from a Bingham distribution

Share:

Description

It simualtes from a Bingham distribution using the code suggested by Kent et al. (2013).

Usage

1
f.rbing(n, lam)

Arguments

n

Sample size.

lam

Eigenvalues of the diagonal symmetric matrix of the Bingham distribution.

Details

The user must have calculated the eigenvalues of the diagonal symmetric matrix of the Bingham distribution. The function accepts the q-1 eigenvalues only. This means, that the user must have subtracted the lowest eigenvalue from the rest and give the non zero ones. The function uses rejection sampling and it was written by Chris Fallaize and Theo Kypraios (University of Nottingham) and kindly offered. Any questions on the code can be addressed to one of the two aforementioned people. It is slightly different than the one Ketn et al. (2013) suggests.

Value

A list including:

X

The simulated data.

avtry

The estimate of M in the rejection sampling. The average number of simulated values before a value is accepted.
