GaussianMarkovChainDistribution.plates_to_parent(index, plates)[source]

Computes the plates of this node with respect to a parent.

If this node has plates (…), the latent dimensionality is D and the number of time instances is N, the plates with respect to the parents are:

(mu, Lambda): (…) (A, nu): (…,N-1,D)
index : int

The index of the parent node to use.
