specify prior

Post by Nishanth Sasankan » November 28 2017

I am trying to choose a prior with the following property , say variable A has uniform prior over center = 3
min =1
max= 5
and
A not equal 2
How can I specify the not equal part?


Thanks

You'd have to modify the code, though for a continuous variable the probability of hitting exactly 2 is zero anyway, so this probably isn't what you want (you can't sample integers directly).
