Resources for ggmcmc

ggmcmc is an R package aimed at providing tools for assessing and diagnosing convergence of Markov Chain Monte Carlo simulations, as well as for graphically display results from full MCMC analysis. The package also facilitates the graphical interpretation of models by providing flexible functions to plot the results against observed variables.


ggmcmc is developed in github and has attracted attention from several fields of science.
