GetParameterMatrix: Return ns-npar matrix

Description Usage Arguments Examples

View source: R/random.R

Description

Contructs a ns x npar matrix, indicating the true paramters used to simualte data. Each row represents a set of parameters for a participant. One should enter either a valid vector or matrix for true parameters (i.e., ps) or a list of (parameter) prior distributions (p.prior). When p.prior is supplied, true parameters are drawn from prior distributions.

Usage

1
GetParameterMatrix(x, ns, prior = NA, ps = NA, seed = NULL)

Arguments

x

a model object

ns

number of subjects.

prior

a list of parameter prior distributions

ps

a vector or matirx. Each row indicates a set of true parameters for a participant.

seed

an integer specifying if and how the random number generator should be initialized.

model <- BuildModel(
p.map     = list(a ="1", v = "1",z = "1", d = "1", sz = "1", sv = "1",
            t0 = "1", st0 = "1"),

p.prior <- BuildPrior(
  dists = c("tnorm", "tnorm", "beta", "beta", "tnorm", "beta"),
  p1    = c(a = 1, v = 0, z = 1, sz = 1, sv = 1, t0 = 1),
  p2    = c(a = 1, v = 2, z = 1, sz = 1, sv = 1, t0 = 1),

## Example 1: Randomly generate 2 sets of true parameters from
## parameter priors (p.prior)
GetParameterMatrix(model, 2, p.prior)
##            a         v         z        sz       sv        t0
## [1,] 1.963067  1.472940 0.9509158 0.5145047 1.344705 0.0850591
## [2,] 1.512276 -1.995631 0.6981290 0.2626882 1.867853 0.1552828

## Example 2: Use a user-selected true parameters
true.vector  <- c(a=1, v=1, z=0.5, sz=0.2, sv=1, t0=.15)
GetParameterMatrix(model, 2, NA, true.vector)
##      a v   z  sz sv   t0
## [1,] 1 1 0.5 0.2  1 0.15
## [2,] 1 1 0.5 0.2  1 0.15
GetParameterMatrix(model, 2, ps = true.vector)

## Example 3: When a user enter arbritary sequence of parameters.
## Note sv is before sz. It should be sz before sv
## See correct sequence, by entering "attr(model, 'p.vector')"
## GetParameterMatrix will rearrange the sequence.
true.vector  <- c(a=1, v=1, z=0.5, sv=1, sz = .2, t0=.15)
GetParameterMatrix(model, 2, NA, true.vector)
##      a v   z  sz sv   t0
## [1,] 1 1 0.5 0.2  1 0.15
## [2,] 1 1 0.5 0.2  1 0.15
