Proposes new coefficients in a spectral GP object as normal deviates
centered around the current values, with the proposal standard deviation the
product of the supplied standard deviation(s) and the square root of
the prior variances. The proposal can be done for all coefficients at
block=0) or for individual blocks.
A GP object, created by
The block of coefficients to be proposed, or 0 if all coefficients are to be proposed.
Proposal standard deviation. This is multiplied by the square root of the prior variance for each coefficient to produce the final proposal standard deviation.
This function can be used to simulate a GP by using
proposal.sd=1 to sample coefficients,
coeff, from the
prior or in a MCMC context to propose new coefficient
values via the Metropolis algorithm. The function automatically
updates the process values in the
process component of the gp
list based on the new coefficient values.
The function modifies the GP object, which is essentially a pointer (an R environment in this case), so NULL is returned.
