https://mc-stan.org/posterior/
The posterior package is intended to provide useful tools for both users and developers of packages for fitting Bayesian models or working with output from Bayesian models. The primary goals of the package are to:
Efficiently convert between many different useful formats of draws (samples) from posterior or prior distributions.
Provide consistent methods for operations commonly performed on draws, for example, subsetting, binding, or mutating draws.
Provide various summaries of draws in convenient formats.
Provide lightweight implementations of state of the art posterior inference diagnostics.
The following options are used to format and print draws
objects,
as in print.draws_array()
, print.draws_df()
, print.draws_list()
,
print.draws_matrix()
, and print.draws_rvars()
:
posterior.max_draws
: Maximum number of draws to print.
posterior.max_iterations
: Maximum number of iterations to print.
posterior.max_chains
: Maximum number of chains to print.
posterior.max_variables
: Maximum number of variables to print.
The following options are used for formatting the output of
summarize_draws
:
posterior.num_args
: Arguments passed to num()
for pretty printing of summaries.
The following options are used to format and print rvar
objects,
as in print.rvar()
and print.draws_rvars()
:
posterior.rvar_summary
: What style of summary to display:
"mean_sd"
displays mean ± sd
, "median_mad"
displays median ± mad
.
posterior.digits
: How many significant digits are displayed. This
defaults to a smaller value (2
) than getOption("digits")
because
rvar
s print two numbers (point summary and uncertainty) next to
each other.
The following option is used to construct new rvar
objects,
as in rfun()
and rdo()
:
posterior.rvar_ndraws
: The number of draws used to construct
new random variables when this number cannot be determined
from existing arguments (e.g., other rvar
s passed to a function).
The following options are used to control warning messages:
posterior.warn_on_merge_chains
: (logical) Some operations will
trigger an automatic merging of chains, for example, because chains do not
match between two objects involved in a binary operation. Whether this
causes a warning can be controlled by this option.
