LOG-TYPES: Types of log file records used by various programs. Users do not usually need to know this information; it is mainly for program maintainers. However, these types are visible in the output of the log-records program (see log-records.doc). Class of Programs Type Description * Any r State of random number generator * Markov Chain Monte Carlo i Description of state/events at one iteration o List of Monte Carlo operations to apply s Explicitly set stepsizes (only some programs) Dynamic MCMC p Values of "momentum" variables t Specification of how to compute trajectories Tempered MCMC m Schedule of temperatures and maybe biases b Current temperature and associated state * Specified distribution d Specification of distribution q Values of variables ("position" variables) * Bivariate Gaussian B Specification of bivariate Gaussian X Point from bivariate Gaussian distribution * Multivariate Gaussian M Specification of multivariate Gaussian X Point from multivariate Gaussian distribution * Ising system I Specification of Ising system S State of spins in system D Direction to push * Statistical modeling D Data specifications for training and test sets M Model specification V Characteristics of model for survival data Neural network A Network architecture P Specification of priors for network S Hyperparameters ("sigmas") W Parameters of network ("weights") Gaussian process P Specification and priors S Hyperparameters F Case-by-case latent values N Case-by-case noise variances Mixture model P Specification and priors S Hyperparameters I Component indicators for training cases O Offset parameters for components N Noise variance parameters Copyright (c) 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998 by Radford M.
