I’m new to using Julia and Turing.jl. A friend recommended I ask about this here.
I’m trying to model the dispersion of the stellar orbits around the supermassive black hole at the center of the Milky Way.
I’m not quite sure how to set up Turing for this kind of inference, and I didn’t see any similar examples in the docs.
Here is a schematic Turing model for what I’m trying to do. Could you please tell me if there’s something evidently wrong, or if I’m totally off-base, if there’s a better way to about it?
@model toymodel(data1, data1error, data2, data2error) = begin # Priors for the parameter we want to constrain A ~ Uniform(1.0,2.0) #Our model does a forward prediction of the mean of the #distribution of some_function_of(nuisance2). #We don't know the standard deviation, but we intend to margnialize over it. predicted_mean = markovian_model_prediction(A, nuisance1) some_function_of(nuisance2) ~ LogNormal(predicted_mean, unknown_std) # Introducing the statistical error asociated with each measured parameter. N = length(data2) for i in 1:N data2[i] ~ Normal(nuisance2[i], data2error[i]) data1[i] ~ Normal(nuisance1[i], data1error[i]) end end
