The as_draws_array() methods convert objects to the draws_array format. The draws_array() function creates an object of the draws_array format based on a set of numeric vectors. See Details.

Arguments

x

An object to convert to a draws_array object.

...

For as_draws_array(): Arguments passed to individual methods (if applicable). For draws_array(): Named arguments containing numeric vectors each defining a separate variable.

.nchains

(positive integer) The number of chains. The default is 1.

Value

A draws_array object, which has classes c("draws_array", "draws", "array").

Details

Objects of class "draws_array" are 3-D arrays with dimensions "iteration", "chain", and "variable". See Examples.
