A Gibbs’ Sampler for the Parameters of a Truncated Multivariate Normal Distribution
AbstractThe inverse distribution function method for drawing randomly from normal and truncated normal distributions is used to set up a Gibbs’ sampler for the posterior density function of the parameters of a truncated multivariate normal distribution. The sampler is applied to shire level rainfall for five shires in Western Australia.
