MC-QUANTITIES: Quantities from log files relating to Monte Carlo simulation. The quantities below relating to Markov chain Monte Carlo can be obtained from log files (eg, for use in xxx-plt). Note that the generic quantities documented in quantities.doc will also be available, as will quantities specific to the particular Markov chain application being used. T Temperature used this iteration (NOT the simulated tempering temp) E Potential energy at end of iteration K Kinetic energy at end of iteration H Total energy at end of iteration (sum of E and K) D[n] Change in total energy for last state proposed (up to max of n) i Inverse temperature (for simulated tempering) I Index of current inverse temperature value j Direction of change for inverse temperature J Higher temperature for attempted transition (meaningful only if last operation in iteration was sim-temp) d Heatbath decay factor used in this iteration f Stepsize factor used in this iteration F Stepsize factor used in this iteration divided by two m Point last moved to (zero is starting point) r Rejection rate for this iteration e Average number of evaluations per slice sampling update this iteration k Cumulative cpu usage in minutes. qn Component n of position pn Component n of momentum sn Stepsize selected by application for component n None of these quantities can be used with a range; 'q', 'p', and 's' must have a modifier, 'D' may have a modifier, the others may not have a modifier. Momenta of zero are assumed if none exist. Copyright (c) 1995 by Radford M. Neal
