Description

Soft L2 constraint on parameters

Usage

1
constraintL2(mu, sigma = 1, attr.name = "prior", condition = NULL)

Arguments

mu

named numeric, the prior values

sigma

named numeric of length of mu or numeric of length one or character of length of mu or character of length one

attr.name

character. The constraint value is additionally returned in an attributed with this name

condition

character, the condition for which the constraint should apply. If NULL, applies to any condition.

Details

If sigma is numeric, the function computes the constraint value

(p-mu)^2/sigma^2

and its derivatives with respect to p. If sigma is a character, the function computes

(p-mu)^2/sigma^2 + log(sigma^2)

and its derivatives with respect to p and sigma. Sigma parameters being passed to the function are ALWAYS assumed to be on a log scale, i.e. internally sigma parameters are converted by exp().

Value

object of class objfn
