I want to test an MCMC code for a Gaussian distribution witha standard deviation of 0.1and for random values of the mean

using Distributions
using LinearAlgebra
using Plots
sigma=0.1
log_target(mu)= log((1/sigma*sqrt(pi*2^2))*exp((-(x-mu)^2)/(2*sigma^2)))
proposal(mu)=Normal(mu,sigma)
initial=0
Iteration=10000
Chain=fill(0.0,Iteration)
Chain[1]=initial
select=[]
for i in 2:Iteration
current= Chain[i-1]
proposed= rand(proposal(current))
C= min(1, log_traget(proposed)/log_traget(current))
if rand() < C
Chain[i]= proposed
push!(select, Chain[i])
else
Chain[i]=current
end
end
select

the code gives me the selected values but i know it’s not enough i want to plot the density and i have no clue how to do it i tried but it didn’t work, i’m still a beginner at mcmc

If I may, I have a simple package to plot densities and other simple fits (EasyFit):

julia> using Plots, EasyFit
julia> x = randn(1000);
julia> fit = fitdensity(x)
------------------- Density -------------
d contains the probability of finding data points within x ± 0.0294
-----------------------------------------
julia> plot(fit.x,fit.d)
julia> savefig("./plot.png")

Result:

You can control some options, like the bin width:

julia> fit = fitdensity(x,step=0.5)
------------------- Density -------------
d contains the probability of finding data points within x ± 0.25
-----------------------------------------
julia> plot(fit.x,fit.d)

I’m not sure I understand you. But if I do, then you may want to look into something like EasyFit or other ways of kernel density estimation. But usually in MCMC, one just plots the histograms, sometimes 2D ones to see the correlations between varibles.
