# MPE.LinearGaussianGaussian: Mean Posterior Estimate (MPE) of a "LinearGaussianGaussian"... In bbricks: Bayesian Methods and Graphical Model Structures for Statistical Modeling

## Description

Generate the MPE estimate of mu in following model structure:

x \sim Gaussian(A z + b, Sigma)

z \sim Gaussian(m,S)

Where Sigma is known. A is a dimx x dimz matrix, x is a dimx x 1 random vector, z is a dimz x 1 random vector, b is a dimm x 1 vector. Gaussian() is the Gaussian distribution. See `?dGaussian` for the definition of Gaussian distribution.
The model structure and prior parameters are stored in a "LinearGaussianGaussian" object.
The MPE estimates is:

• z_MPE = E(z|m,S,A,b,x,Sigma)

## Usage

 ```1 2``` ```## S3 method for class 'LinearGaussianGaussian' MPE(obj, ...) ```

## Arguments

 `obj` A "LinearGaussianGaussian" object. `...` Additional arguments to be passed to other inherited types.

## Value

numeric vector, the MPE estimate of "z".
