Description

Conditional dependency detection between a level k_x (k_x > 1) categorical variable x and a continuous variable y via Bayes factor given a level k_z categorical variable z with O(n^{1/2})-resolution. The basic idea is almost the same as bfslice_c. The only different is that bfslice_eqp_c groups samples into approximate O(n^{1/2}) groups which contain approximate O(n^{1/2}) samples and treat the groups as a sample to calculate Bayes facor. If k_z = 1, it is unconditional dependency detection method. It could be applied for non-parametric variable selecltion.

Usage

1
  bfslice_eqp_c(z, x, zdim, xdim, lambda, alpha)

Arguments

z

Vector: observations of given (preselected) categorical variable, 0,1,…,k_z-1 for level k_z categorical variable, should be ranked according to values of continuous variable y with x in advanced, either ascending or descending.

x

Vector: observations of categorical variable, 0,1,…,k_x-1 for level k_x categorical variable, should be ranked according to values of continuous variable y with z in advanced, either ascending or descending.

zdim

Level of z, equals k_z.

xdim

Level of x, equals k_x.

lambda

lambda corresponds to the probability that makes slice in each possible position. lambda should be greater than 0.

alpha

alpha is hyper-parameter of the prior distribution of frequency in each slice. alpha should be greater than 0 and less equal than k_x.

Value

Value of Bayes factor (nonnegative). Bayes factor could be treated as a statistic and one can take some threshold then calculates the corresponded Type I error rate. One can also take the value of Bayes factor for judgement.
