Description Usage Arguments Value Author(s)

This utility function just initializes the state object that is then passed around during the course of an MCMC for a hierarchical spatial GEV distribution. It starts the object in a nice spot and fills in the relevant items.

1 | ```
gev.init(Y.list, X.all, S, prior.user, full, fixed.xi)
``` |

`Y.list` |
The list of Y values |

`X.all` |
The matrix of covariates |

`S` |
The matrix of spatial locations |

`prior.user` |
The user-specified prior parameters, if there are any |

`full` |
A boolean indicating if BMA is to be performed |

`fixed.xi` |
An indication if the parameter xi is to be estimated (NULL) or set to a given value. |

This returns a state object that is then used for the MCMC by the main updating routines.
