Description

Simulates paths of prior projected Polya tree distributions centered around a projected normal distribution.

Usage

1
2
dsimpriorppt(nsim = 5, mm = 4,mu = c(0, 0),
sig = 1, ll = 100, aa = 1, delta = 1.1, units = "radians")

Arguments

nsim

integer indicating the number of simulations.

mm

integer indicating the number of finite levels of the Polya tree.

mu

mean vector of the projected bivariate normal distribution.

sig

standard deviation of the projected bivariate normal distribution. We advise to always use sig = 1.

ll

number of equally spaced points at which the projected distribution will be evaluated.

aa

alpha. Precision parameter of the Polya tree.

delta

controls of the speed at which the variances of the branching probabilities move down in the tree, rho(m)=m^delta.

units

units of the support: "radians", "degrees" or "hours".

Value

An object with class priorppt.circ whose underlying structure is a list containing the following components:

x

points where the density is evaluated.

ppt.sims

simulated density paths of the prior projected Polya tree.

stats

descriptive statistics: mean direction and concentration of each simulated density.
