# TG.interval: Truncated Gaussian confidence interval. In selectiveInference: Tools for Post-Selection Inference

## Description

Compute truncated Gaussian interval of Lee et al. (2016) with arbitrary affine selection and covariance. Z should satisfy A

## Usage

 ```1 2 3 4 5 6``` ```TG.interval(Z, A, b, eta, Sigma=NULL, alpha=0.1, gridrange=c(-100,100), gridpts=100, griddepth=2, flip=FALSE, bits=NULL) ```

## Arguments

 `Z` Observed data (assumed to follow N(mu, Sigma) with sum(eta*mu)=null_value) `A` Matrix specifiying affine inequalities AZ <= b `b` Offsets in the affine inequalities AZ <= b. `eta` Determines the target sum(eta*mu) and estimate sum(eta*Z). `Sigma` Covariance matrix of Z. Defaults to identity. `alpha` Significance level for confidence intervals (target is miscoverage alpha/2 in each tail) `gridrange` Grid range for constructing confidence intervals, on the standardized scale. `gridpts` ??????? `griddepth` ??????? `flip` ??????? `bits` Number of bits to be used for p-value and confidence interval calculations. Default is NULL, in which case standard floating point calculations are performed. When not NULL, multiple precision floating point calculations are performed with the specified number of bits, using the R package `Rmpfr` (if this package is not installed, then a warning is thrown, and standard floating point calculations are pursued). Note: standard double precision uses 53 bits so, e.g., a choice of 200 bits uses about 4 times double precision. The confidence interval computation is sometimes numerically challenging, and the extra precision can be helpful (though computationally more costly). In particular, extra precision might be tried if the values in the output columns of `tailarea` differ noticeably from alpha/2.

## Details

This function computes selective confidence intervals based on the polyhedral lemma of Lee et al. (2016).

## Value

 `int` Selective confidence interval. `tailarea` Realized tail areas (lower and upper) for each confidence interval.
