Moment Fractional Bayes Factor Stochastic Search for Regression Models
Description
Estimate the edge inclusion probabilities for a regression model (Y(q) on Y(q1),...,Y(1)) with q variables from observational data, using the moment fractional Bayes factor approach.
Usage
1 
Arguments
Corr 
qxq correlation matrix. 
nobs 
Number of observations. 
G_base 
Base model. 
h 
Parameter prior. 
C 
Costant who keeps the probability of all local moves bounded away from 0 and 1. 
n_tot_mod 
Maximum number of different models which will be visited by the algorithm, for each equation. 
n_hpp 
Number of the highest posterior probability models which will be returned by the procedure. 
Value
An object of class
list
with:
M_q

Matrix (qxq) with the estimated edge inclusion probabilities.
M_G

Matrix (n*n_hpp)xq with the n_hpp highest posterior probability models returned by the procedure.
M_P

Vector (n_hpp) with the n_hpp posterior probabilities of the models in M_G.
