predcov: Predicts covariance matrix

Description Usage Arguments Value Note See Also Examples

View source: R/utilities_fsvdraws.R

Description

predcov simulates from the posterior predictive distribution of the model-implied covariance matrix.

Usage

1
predcov(x, ahead = 1, each = 1)

Arguments

x

Object of class 'fsvdraws', usually resulting from a call to fsvsample.

ahead

Vector of timepoints, indicating how many steps to predict ahead.

each

Single integer (or coercible to such) indicating how often should be drawn from the posterior predictive distribution for each draw that has been stored during MCMC sampling.

Value

4-dimensional array containing draws from the predictive covariance distribution.

Note

Currently crudely implemented as a triple loop in pure R, may be slow.
