CosmoMC: MPI_Limit_Converge

Post by Kristen Lackeos » January 05 2018

Nov 2016 version
Is MPI_Limit_Converge valid for Gaussian distributions only? It seems one would have to use bootstrapping to compute confidence limits for non-Normal distributions.

I doesn't assume Gaussianity, it works on the tail histogram integrals.
