Prior-class: Univariate prior on model parameter

Prior-classR Documentation

Univariate prior on model parameter


A Prior object represents a prior distribution on the single model parameter of a DataDistribution class object. Together a prior and data-distribution specify the class of the joint distribution of the test statisic, X, and its parameter, theta. Currently, adoptr only allows simple models with a single parameter. Implementations for PointMassPrior and ContinuousPrior are available.


For an example on working with priors, see here.

  pdf     = function(x) dnorm(x, mean = 0.3, sd = 0.2),
  support = c(-2, 3)
