post_prob(x, ..., prior_prob = NULL, model_names = NULL)

## S3 method for class 'bridge'
post_prob(x, ..., prior_prob = NULL, model_names = NULL)

## S3 method for class 'bridge_list'
post_prob(x, ..., prior_prob = NULL,
  model_names = NULL)

## Default S3 method:
post_prob(x, ..., prior_prob = NULL, model_names = NULL)

Arguments

x

Object of class "bridge" or "bridge_list" as returned from bridge_sampler. Additionally, the default method assumes that all passed objects are numeric log marginal likelihoods (e.g., from logml) and will throw an error otherwise.

...

further objects of class "bridge" or "bridge_list" as returned from bridge_sampler. Or numeric values for the default method.

prior_prob

numeric vector with prior model probabilities. If omitted, a uniform prior is used (i.e., all models are equally likely a priori). The default NULL corresponds to equal prior model weights.

model_names

If NULL (the default) will use model names derived from deparsing the call. Otherwise will use the passed values as model names.

Value

For the default method and the method for "bridge" objects, a named numeric vector with posterior model probabilities (i.e., which sum to one).

For the method for "bridge_list" objects, a matrix consisting of posterior model probabilities where each row sums to one and gives the model probabilities for one set of logmls. The (named) columns correspond to the models and the number of rows is given by the "bridge_list" element with the most repetitions. Elements with fewer repetitions will be recycled (with warning).
