Draw from the posterior distribution of the state vectors

Share:

Description

The function simulates one draw from the posterior distribution of the state vectors.

Usage

1
dlmBSample(modFilt)

Arguments

modFilt

a list, typically the ouptut from dlmFilter, with elements m, U.C, D.C, a, U.R, D.R (see the value returned by dlmFilter), and mod The latter is an object of class "dlm" or a list with elements GG, W and, optionally, JGG, JW, and X

Details

The calculations are based on singular value decomposition.

Value

The function returns a draw from the posterior distribution of the state vectors. If m is a time series then the returned value is a time series with the same tsp, otherwise it is a matrix or vector.
