MultiGHQuad-package: Multidimensional Gauss-Hermite Quadrature

Description Details Author(s) References See Also


Functions to perform n-dimensional numerical integration on n parameters with a multivariate normal prior distribution.


Use init.quad to generate a quadrature grid, and eval.quad to evaluate the integral. Evaluation is performed with Gauss-Hermite quadrature, with a prior distribution that can be specified to any multivariate normal. Additionally, the grid can be adapted to any multivariate normal distribution - that is known to be close(r) to the posterior distribution under evaluation.
