I hope this is a fair question. How many draws is generated per iteration in ep-stan? I don’t see a parameter for setting this.
Good question. In the master branch example sckript
experiment/fit.py, command line argument
mc_opt can be used to set chains, iter, warmup, and thin -options for tilted distribution sampling in EP (analogous parameters as in Stan).
If you build your own example by constructing a
Master-object, you can provide
thin directly in the constructor.
Yes, I see them now. thank you. My other question is what’s the difference adding iterations in mc_opt vs the iterations in the outer loop?
