PhaseStatistics {ArchaeoPhases} | R Documentation |
Estimation of summary statistics, including the beginning and end of a phase, and the duration of the phase
PhaseStatistics( PhaseMin_chain, PhaseMax_chain, level = 0.95, roundingOfValue = 0 )
PhaseMin_chain |
Numeric vector containing the output of the MCMC algorithm for the minimum of the dates included in the phase. |
PhaseMax_chain |
Numeric vector containing the output of the MCMC algorithm for the maximum of the dates included in the phase. |
level |
Probability corresponding to the level of confidence used for the credible interval and the highest density region. |
roundingOfValue |
Integer indicating the number of decimal places. |
The summary statistics are those given by the MarginalStatistics()
function.
The time range is given by PhaseTimeRange()
function. The duration is computed
as follows: duration = maximum - minimum at each iteration of the MCMC output.
A matrix of values corresponding to the summary statistics:
Statistics of the minimum of the dates included in the phase
Statistics of the maximum of the dates included in the phase
Statistics of the duration of the dates included in the phase
The results are given in calendar year (in format BC/AD).
