Draws from a uniform distribution with bounds
pri.hi to create the prior distribution of the Heligman-Pollard parameters necessary for the Bayesian Melding procedure
Lower bound of the uniform from which the prior is drawn. Defaults to pri.lo = c(0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 15, 0, 0)
Upper bound of the uniform from which the prior is drawn. Defaults to pri.hi = c(0.15, 1, 1, 0.25, 15, 55, 0.1, 1.25)
The number of parameters to be estimated. Defaults to 8
theta.dim matrix containing the 1000*
theta.dim sets of the Heligman-Pollard parameters drawn from a uniform distribution
