Description

Merge-split proposals for conjugate "Chinese Restaurant Process" (CRP) mixture models using sequential allocation of items, as originally described in Dahl (2003), with additional functionality for the two parameter CRP prior.

seqAllocatedMergeSplit_base(
  partition,
  logPosteriorPredictiveDensity = function(i, subset) 0,
  mass = 1,
  discount = 0,
  nUpdates = 1L,
  selectionWeights = NULL
)

Arguments

partition

A numeric vector of cluster labels representing the current partition.

logPosteriorPredictiveDensity

A function taking an index i (as a numeric vector of length one) and a subset of integers subset, and returning the natural logarithm of p( y_i | y_subset ), i.e., that item's contribution to the log integrated likelihood given a subset of the other items. The default value "turns off" the likelihood, resulting in prior simulation (rather than posterior simulation).

mass

A specification of the mass (concentration) parameter in the CRP prior. Must be greater than the -discount argument.

discount

A numeric value on the interval [0,1) corresponding to the discount parameter in the two-parameter CRP prior.

nUpdates

An integer giving the number of merge-split proposals before returning. This has the effect of thinning the Markov chain.

selectionWeights

A matrix or data frame whose first two columns are the unique pairs of data indices, along with a column of weights representing how likely each pair is to be selected at the beginning of each merge-split update.

Value

partition

An integer vector giving the updated partition encoded using cluster labels.

accept

The acceptance rate of the Metropolis-Hastings proposals, i.e. the number accepted proposals divided by nUpdates.
