This module contains the types, classes, and procedures relevant to weights of random samples.
Within the world of statistics, particularly, traditional frequentist statistics, there is absolute confusion on what types of weights exist and what their implications are.
The most relevant definitions, which are also currently used in the ParaMonte library, are the following,
There are also other definitions of weight which special use cases, for example:
\begin{equation} \mathrm{ESS} = \frac{ \big( \sum_{i = 1}^{N} w_i \big)^2 }{ \sum_{i = 1}^{N} w_i^2 } ~, \end{equation}
If the weights \(w_i\) are normalized such that \(\sum_{i = 1}^{N} w_i = N\), then,\begin{equation} \mathrm{ESS} = \frac{ N }{ 1 + \mathrm{VAR}(w) } ~, \end{equation}
where \(\mathrm{VAR}(w)\) represents the variance of the weights.

type(aweight_type), parameter pm_sampleWeight::aweight = aweight_type() |
This is a scalar parameter
object of type aweight_type that is exclusively used to signify the Symmetric class of a given matrix within an interface of a procedure of the ParaMonte library.
Precision (or Analytic) weights are weights that are inversely proportional to the variance of an observation.
The variance of the \(i\)th observation is assumed to be \(\sigma^2/w_i\).
Typically, the observations represent averages and the weights are the number of elements that gave rise to the average.
For example usage, see the documentation of the target procedure requiring this object.
