atmcmc-package: Automatically Tuned Markov Chain Monte Carlo

Description Details Author(s) References


This package tunes a symmetric random walk Metropolis algorithm with Gaussian proposals via finite MCMC adaption combined with new adaptive diagnostics, and it runs the tuned algorithm to converge to a target distribution and estimate the stationary mean of a functional.

The main function is ‘atmcmc’, which is to run a MCMC algorithm with adaptive schemes and diagnostics embedded. ‘plotmcmc’ function is to get traceplots and histograms of output from an ‘atmcmc’ run. ‘summarymcmc’ function displays summary statistics from the output.
