11, we will provide an algorithm for simulating from Wisharts. 5 Multivariate Regression One useful way to view the multivariate regression model is as a set of regression equations related through common X variables and correlated errors: y1 = X β1 + ε1 , .. 33) .. ym = X βm + εm . The subscript c denotes a vector of n observations on equation c; we use the subscript c to suggest the columns of a matrix which will be developed later. 33) is not complete without a specification of the error structure.

The GHK method (Keane 1994; Hajivassiliou et al. 1996) uses an importance sampling method to approximate this integral. The idea of this method is to construct the importance function and draw from it using univariate truncated normals. We can define P either in terms of the correlated normal vector, x, or in terms of a vector of z of uncorrelated unit normals, z ∼ N (0, I ): x = Lz, = LL , P = Pr(x ∈ A) = Pr(a < x < b) = Pr(a < Lz < b) = Pr(L −1 a < z < L −1 b) = Pr(z ∈ B), B = {z : L −1 a < z < L −1 b}.

6 Dirichlet Distribution The natural conjugate prior for the multinomial distribution is called the Dirichlet distribution with density p(θ|α1 , . . , αk ) = (α1 + · · · αk ) α1 −1 θ · · · θkαk −1 , (α1 ) · · · (αk ) 1 αi > 0. 10) θ is a k-dimensional vector that must be in the unit simplex. DIRICHLET DRAW ALGORITHM Draw xi ∼ ind Gamma(αi , αi ). θi = x i / j x j . R bayesm includes rdirichlet to simulate from the Dirichlet distribution. 4 is a very useful model not only because of direct application to situations with sets of related linear regressions but also in various hierarchical model settings in which the model is used as part of the prior structure.
