View source: R/prog.R

Description

This function finds, if it exists, the gap between two successive phases. This gap or hiatus is the longest interval [IntervalInf, IntervalSup] that satisfies : P(Phase1Max < IntervalInf < IntervalSup < Phase2Min | M) = level for each successive phase.

Usage

MultiPhasesGap(data, position_minimum, position_maximum = position_minimum+1,
 level = 0.95, max_decimal = 0)

Arguments

data

dataframe containing the output of the MCMC algorithm

position_minimum

numeric vector containing the column number corresponding to the minimum of the dates included in each phase

position_maximum

numeric vector containing the column number corresponding to the maximum of the dates included in each phase. By default, position_maximum = position_minimum + 1.

level

probability corresponding to the level of confidence

max_decimal

maximum number of decimal

Details

For each i, MultiPhasesGap computes the gap interval for the phase defined by its minimum position_minimum[i] and its maximum position_maximum[i]. The default value of position_maximum corresponds to CSV files exported from ChronoModel software.

Value

Returns a matrix of values containing the level of confidence and the endpoints of the gap for each pair of successive phases
