Parametric covariance matrix modeling in Bayesian panel regression

Mickael Salabasis ()

Abstract: The full Bayesian treatment of error component models typically relies on data augmentation to produce the required inference. Never stricly necessary a direct approach is always possible though not necessarily practical. The mechanics of direct sampling are outlined and a template for including model uncertainty is described. The needed tools, relying on various Markov chain Monte Carlo techniques, are developed and direct sampling, with and without effect selection, is illustrated.
