Inverse-Wishart: The Inverse Wishart Distribution

Inverse-WishartR Documentation

The Inverse Wishart Distribution

Description

Density and random generation for the Inverse Wishart distribution, using the Cholesky factor of either the scale matrix or the rate matrix.

Usage

dinvwish_chol(x, cholesky, df, scale_param = TRUE, log = FALSE)

rinvwish_chol(n = 1, cholesky, df, scale_param = TRUE)

Arguments

x

vector of values.

cholesky

upper-triangular Cholesky factor of either the scale matrix (when scale_param is TRUE) or rate matrix (otherwise).

df

degrees of freedom.

scale_param

logical; if TRUE the Cholesky factor is that of the scale matrix; otherwise, of the rate matrix.

log

logical; if TRUE, probability density is returned on the log scale.

n

number of observations (only n=1 is handled currently).

Details

See Gelman et al., Appendix A for mathematical details. The rate matrix as used here is defined as the inverse of the scale matrix, S^{-1}, given in Gelman et al.

Value

dinvwish_chol gives the density and rinvwish_chol generates random deviates.
