dlkjcorr_marginal(x, K, eta, log = FALSE)

plkjcorr_marginal(q, K, eta, lower.tail = TRUE, log.p = FALSE)

qlkjcorr_marginal(p, K, eta, lower.tail = TRUE, log.p = FALSE)

rlkjcorr_marginal(n, K, eta)

Arguments

x

vector of quantiles.

K

Dimension of the correlation matrix. Must be greater than or equal to 2.

eta

Parameter controlling the shape of the distribution

log

logical; if TRUE, probabilities p are given as log(p).

q

vector of quantiles.

lower.tail

logical; if TRUE (default), probabilities are P[X ≤ x] otherwise, P[X > x].

log.p

logical; if TRUE, probabilities p are given as log(p).

p

vector of probabilities.

n

number of observations. If length(n) > 1, the length is taken to be the number required.

Details

The LKJ distribution is a distribution over correlation matrices with a single parameter, eta. For a given eta and a KxK correlation matrix R:

R ~ LKJ(eta)

Each off-diagonal entry of R, r[i,j]: i != j, has the following marginal distribution (Lewandowski, Kurowicka, and Joe 2009):

(r[i,j] + 1)/2 ~ Beta(eta - 1 + K/2, eta - 1 + K/2)

In other words, r[i,j] is marginally distributed according to the above Beta distribution scaled into (-1,1).

Value

The length of the result is determined by n for rlkjcorr_marginal, and is the maximum of the lengths of the numerical arguments for the other functions.

The numerical arguments other than n are recycled to the length of the result. Only the first elements of the logical arguments are used.
