Functional ANOVA using INLA – update

February 29, 2012

INLA author Håvard Rue wrote me to point out a problem in the Functional ANOVA code given in this post. I made a mistake in setting the precision of the fixed effects (I used “default” instead of “prec”). I’ve put Håvard’s corrected version of the code below.

##Load the data
##cw =
##Run INLA
##res <- inla.fanova.temperature(cw)
##Plot "fitted" model


##Use the same colour scheme Ramsay&Silverman did
col.scale <- c('red','blue','darkgreen','black') <- function()
cw <- with(CanadianWeather,ldply(1:length(place),function(ind) data.frame(temp=dailyAv[,ind,1],place=place[ind],region=region[ind],day=1:365)))
##We need to create multiple copies of the time index because we need multiple functions of time
cw <- mutate(cw,day.region=day,,

##INLA apparently doesn't like the original factor levels, we modify them
levels(cw$place) <- str_replace(levels(cw$place),'. ','_')

inla.fanova.temperature <- function(cw)
##The formula for the model
formula <- temp ~ f(day.region,model="rw2",replicate=region.ind,cyclic=T, diagonal=1e-5)+
f(day,model="rw2",cyclic=T, diagonal=1e-5)+
f(,model="rw2",cyclic=T,replicate=place.ind, diagonal=1e-5) +
##Note that 'region' comes in as a factor, and inla treats factors
##in the same way as the 'lm' function, i.e., using contrasts This
##is not strictly necessary in a Bayesian analysis and here
##complicates things a bit The default "treatment" contrasts used
##here mean that the "place" factor has the Pacific region as the
##default level to which other regions are compared

##Call inla We use control.fixed to impose a proper gaussian prior
##on the fixed effects and control.predictor to make INLA compute
##marginal distributions for each value of the linear predictor
##The call takes 160 sec. on my machine
control.fixed=list(prec=0.01, prec.intercept = 0.01),verbose=T)
