When I use stan() in for sentences then sometimes, R hat and n_eff and se_mean does not be calculated even if such a chain is not constant. The following code use 6 fitted models and in the third model, R hat does not calculated. If the code does not reproduce this, then please chainge 6 or 3. It sometimes occurs and sometimes does not occur.

My original code is too bit to show, so, I made some simple example. (I guess, it still includes redundant stuff.) The code is the following. In this code, 6 fittted model objects (`x[[i]], i= 1,..., 6`

) are created. In the third fitted model object,` x[[3]]`

, some R hat is not calculated as follows . In this example, a chains of such a prametere looks non-constant.

But, when I show the trace plot of one of such a parameter, e.g., `A[30]`

, trace plot looks good. I am worried if the example does not replicate such a phenomenon.

## Please Copy and paste the following R-code.

```
x <- list()
for (k in 1:6) {
stanmodelcode <- "
data {
int<lower=0> N;
real y[N];
}
parameters {
real mu[30];
}
model {
for(i in 1:30){
target += normal_lpdf(mu[i] | 0, 10);
target += normal_lpdf(y | mu[i], 1);
}
}
generated quantities{
real A[30];
for(i in 1:30){
A[i] = sqrt(mu[i]+1 );
}
}
"
y <- rnorm(20)
dat <- list(N = 20, y = y);
x[[k]] <- stan(model_code = stanmodelcode, model_name = "example",
data = dat, iter = 111, chains = 1, verbose = F )
}
x[[3]]
rstan::traceplot(x[[3]], pars=c("A[30]"))
