[…] uous uniform distributions with πMBD∈[0,1], πmig∈[0,1], and N∈[5,000,12,000]. From 1×105 simulations, 0.1% were accepted using a rejection algorithm (). ABC was performed using the R packages abc and abctools (; ).Different sets of summary statistics were explored and the optimal set selected that returned the lowest prediction error (a measure of distance between estimated and true values for eac […]


Selecting Summary Statistics in Approximate Bayesian Computation for Calibrating Stochastic Models

Biomed Res Int
PMCID: 3830866
PMID: 24288668
DOI: 10.1155/2013/210646

[…] of the parameter vector θ = {c 1, c 3, τ} presented to the ABC algorithm. The statistical programming language R is among the good choices for ABC implementation; here we use the abc function in the abctools package for R []. The abc function also requires the user to decide whether to work with transformed parameter values and to select a method to improve estimation of the partial posterior by […]
