BUGS Line Example

Description

The Line example involves a linear regression analysis of the data points (1,1), (2,3), (3,3), (4,3), and (5,5). The proposed Bayesian model is

y[i] ~ N(mu[i], tau)

mu[i] = alpha + beta * (x[i] - mean(x[]))

with the following priors:

alpha ~ N(0, 0.0001)

beta ~ N(0, 0.0001)

tau ~ Gamma(0.001, 0.001)

Two parallel chains from the MCMC sampler were generated and the output saved in the S data frames line1 and line2.

Usage

data(line)

Format

The data frames line1 and line2 each containing 200 observations.
