# maclogp: Measures of Uncertainty for Model Selection

The goal of maclogp is to compute measures of uncertainty for a model selection method based on an information criterion. Two measures were proposed by Liu, et.al. The first measure is a kind of model confidence set that measures the variation of model selection, called MAC. The second measure focuses on error of model selection, called LogP. Another similar model confidence set adapted from Bayesian Model Averaging can also be computed using this package.

## Installation

You can install the released version of maclogp from github with:

`devtools::install_github("YuanyuanLi96/maclogp")`

## Example

This is a basic example which shows you how to solve a common problem:

```
library(maclogp)
set.seed(0)
n= 100
B=100
p=5
x = matrix(rnorm(n*p, mean=0, sd=1), n, p)
true_b = c(1:3, rep(0,p-3))
y = x%*% true_b+rnorm(n)
alpha=c(0.1,0.05,0.01)
data=list(x=x,y=y)
models=Models_gen(1:p)
result=MAC(models, data, B, alpha)#default selection criterion is "BIC".
plot_MAC(models, alpha, result$con_sets, p)
```
