Description

This function performs ABC-SMC as described in Toni 2009 for given diversification model, provided a phylogenetic tree. ABC-SMC is not limited to only using the normalized LTT as statistic.

abc_smc_nltt(
    tree, statistics, simulation_function, init_epsilon_values,
    prior_generating_function, prior_density_function,
    number_of_particles = 1000, sigma = 0.05, stop_rate = 1e-05
  )

Arguments

tree

an object of class "phylo"; the tree upon which we want to fit our diversification model

statistics

A vector containing functions that take a tree as an argument and return a single scalar value (the statistic).

simulation_function

A function that implements the diversification model and returns an object of class "phylo".

init_epsilon_values

A vector containing the initial threshold values for the summary statistics from the vector statistics.

prior_generating_function

Function to generate parameters from the prior distribution of these parameters (e.g. a function returning lambda and mu in case of the birth-death model)

prior_density_function

Function to calculate the prior probability of a set of parameters.

number_of_particles

Number of particles to be used per iteration of the ABC-SMC algorithm.

sigma

Standard deviation of the perturbance distribution (perturbance distribution is a gaussian with mean 0).

stop_rate

If the acceptance rate drops below stopRate, stop the ABC-SMC algorithm and assume convergence.

Value

A matrix with n columns, where n is the number of parameters you are trying to estimate.
