Note that this will involve compiling a Stan model and may take a while.

  example = c("normal_sd", "normal_bad"),
  interface = c("rstan", "cmdstanr", "rjags")



name of the example model. normal_sd is a simple model fitting a normal distribution parametrized as mean and standard deviation. normal_bad is a model that tries to implement the normal_sd model, but assumes an incorrect parametrization of the normal distribution. For Stan-based backends, the model is written as if Stan parametrized normal distribution with precision (while Stan uses sd), for JAGS-based backends the model is written as if JAGS parametrized normal distribution with sd (while JAGS uses precision).


name of the interface to be used to fit the model
