Based on the maximum a' posteriori (MAP)
treed partition extracted from a "tgp"
class object,
calculate independent sequential treed DOptimal designs in each of the regions.
1  tgp.design(howmany, Xcand, out, iter = 5000, verb = 0)

howmany 
Number of new points in the design. Must
be less than the number of candidates contained in

Xcand 

out 

iter 
number of iterations of stochastic accent algorithm,
default 
verb 
positive integer indicating after how many rounds of
stochastic approximation in 
This function partitions Xcand
and out$X
based on
the MAP tree (obtained on "tgp"
class out
with
partition
) and calls
dopt.gp
in order to obtain a Doptimal design under
independent stationary Gaussian processes models defined in each
region. The aim is to obtain a design where new points from Xcand
are spaced out relative to themselves, and relative to
the existing locations (out$X
) in the region.
The number of new points from each region of the partition is
proportional to the number of candidates Xcand
in the region.
Output is a list of data.frame
s containing XX
design
points for each region of the MAP tree in out
Input Xcand
containing NaN, NA, Inf
are discarded with nonfatal
warnings
DOptimal computation in each region is preceded by a print statement
indicated the number of new locations to be chosen and the number of candidates
in the region. Other than that, there are no other indicators of progress.
You will have to be patient.
Creating treed sequential Doptimal designs is no speedy task. At least it
faster than the nontreed version (see dopt.gp
).
