Simulate values from a distribution using converged MCMC chains from a DREAM object

Share:

Description

Continues a converged MCMC chain to provide an additional sample.

Outlier detection, reporting and convergence diagnostics are turned off.

If no thinning was previously used, the sample is thinned with t=10. This value can be overridden by specifying a value for thin.t in the control parameter to dream.

## S3 method for class 'dream'
simulate(object,nsim=1000,seed=NULL,...)

Arguments

object

dream object

nsim

Approximate number of function evaluations (length of sequence will be lower due to thinning)

seed

passed to set.seed before continuing

...

ignored, for compatibility with S3 generic

Value

a dream object with approximately the requested number of function evaluations
